Ryder Lacombe, Alberta

Fair address: Calgary Regional Heritage School Fair

Project: Canadian Space Agency

My project is about how the Canadian Space Agency has not only made major contributions to space exploration in the past, but is also working towards the future of space exploration.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing that I learned about my topic is the fact that the Canadarm only takes the same amount of energy as a single hundred watt lightbulb.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

What I would like to point out to other Canadians is that we have always been innovators, without our help space exploration would not be nearly as advanced as it is today.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

When the Canadian Space Agency began, people were being amazed by the fact that satellites were going into space. Today in my life I am amazed by the fact that we are working on a way to live on the Moon or even Mars.
