Episode Description:

This is part 2 of a 45-minute program.

The Flight School series is a 5-part series that examines historical, scientific, and technological aspects of aviation and its impact on exploration, communication, commerce, and national defense. Each program integrates science, technology, engineering, physics, math, and other fields of study. Students meet pilots, engineers and astronauts; and are introduced to museum curators and cool artifacts, as a team of educators identify scientific principles that make controlled, heavier-than-air flight possible.

"On the Red Planet," the fifth installment in the series, explores how scientists are studying Mars, the kind of valuable information being collected, and what that information tells us about our own planet.

The Flight School series was produced in partnership by the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Funding was provided by a grant from The Northern Virginia Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications & Electronics Association.
