Suit up for space, and make a jelly optical fibre

Suit up for space, and make a jelly optical fibre: "News: Suit up for space    
   

To boldly go out of the airlock, astronauts need to look the part. Donning a spacesuit protects astronauts from the dangerous conditions just beyond our atmosphere."



Check out the at home activity, too! create a fiber optic conduit out of gelatin and a laser pointer!  For this activity, you need to check with parents first, as it involves boiling water and using a sharp knife!
