The Spacex launch in my opinion is so cool. It is the first rocket launched that was run by a company, NASA is run by the goverment. I think it is so histroic because one it is a used rocket. two there is so much more new technolagy.
My main reaction to this is, wow because it is a USED rocket and it all started with a businessman who started able himself and now 5 years later he is launching a rocket into the sky. My other reaction is that it is so crazy that they have done 17 of spaceX and it has not been around for that long unlike NASA.
I am still wondering so many things, like how long will they be in the sky for, also how long did it take to build a huge spaceship like this. I also am still wondering if Elon musk new when he was starting a company he would become famous and launch one of the most famous rockets in the world.
finally we finished!!!! Me and Nate have worked so hard on Rube Goldberg. It took us 132 attempts! We just showed our Rube Goldberg to the class, I thought it was really good. Something I thought was very funny was a lot of people had like 10 to 15 attempts and we had 132.
I have learned so much from this project. I have learned not only how to build a rube Goldberg but it was a great way to learn how to work with others. I also learned how teamwork can help so much because in the beginning while I was waiting Nate to come to my house and I tried to set up the dominos by myself but I kept failing but with Nate we made no mistakes.
So far me and Nate are so very close to finishing we are currently on try 91 so I think we will get it soon. We are thinking of changing the dominos because they don’t seem to be falling down very well. We have also been having so much fun so far!
The reason why the dominos and the tube and the train tracks and making the ball go into the net the hardest because what keeps on happening with the dominos is since I don’t have many of them they are very far apart which means that they might not hit every single time. That is one of the reasons why we have had so many try’s. Now the tube is hard because we have to tape it to a ramp but it keeps falling down because it is so steep, it is also hard because it is quiet difficult to get the marble threw the tube. now the train tracks are hard because since the marble is falling with so much force when it hits the train it goes very fast. That leads to the train falling of the track. Finally it is hard to put the ball in the net because we have to balance it on the track which is very hard to do and it is difficult to get the train to hit the ball directly in the middle.
