ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND

( GUIDANCE CORNER )



















Aktiviti sebegini bersama anak-anak pasti akan jadi memori manis sepanjang hidup

Semalam, Hafidz bersama abangnya mencerap bintang di atas beranda belakang. Langit luas hingga ke ufuk kaki laut itu,ditaburi bintang-bintang yang berkelipan menghias bulan yang bersinar terang. Terasa nak join mereka tapi tengah goreng keropok. Kedengaran suara abangnya menerang kedudukan bintang-bintang di langit. Masa di universiti dulu, dia adalah ahli kepada kelab mencerap bintang. Sedikit sebanyak dia bolehlah bantu kami memulakan kelas astronomi. Sejak dari kecil lagi Hafidz sangat minat mengira bintang di langit. Bila dah tak larat kira, dia kata aje..berjuta-juta. Baru sekarang dia tahu bahawa bilangan bintang di langit jauh lebih banyak dari bilangan butir pasir di atas bumi. Tergamam dia !!! Maha Besar Allah menciptakan semua itu.Sememangnya aku juga sangat meminati bidang astronomi. Teruja rasanya bila ada geng untuk mencerap bintang nanti.
Insyaallah...suatu hari nanti dapat miliki peralatan canggih ni..




 

 

 

 

 

  

 

Pagi ini, Hafidz minta diajar tentang phasa-phasa bintang. Semakin lama dia nampak semakin bersemangat untuk belajar benda-benda baru terutamanya dalam bidang sains. Alhamdulillah....nampaknya cara self learning yang kami terapkan makin menampakkan hasil. Pada peringkat awal, kita tunjuk dulu cara bagaimana untuk mendapat maklumat dan apakah kegunaan ilmu itu dalam kehidupan.

Gunakan style yang sama untuk berbagai bidang ilmu. Nak belajar apa? Bahasa, sains, mathematick, kemahirn hidup atau apa saja...mula-mula click image. Dah dapat gambaran yang jelas tentang apa yang sedang dipelajari. Cari pula website berkenaan. Dapat dah sedikit sebanyak info berkenaan apa yang sedang dipelajari. Cari pula dekat youtube sebanyak mungkin video yang boleh tambah lagi faham. Bincang........teroka sampai puas. Masa tak jadi hal. Berjam pun tak apa. Yang penting teroka dengan seronok!!! Hari-hari macam tu.....bulan berganti bulan dan dah nak masuk 2 tahun dah....style tu dah terpahat sebati dengan dirinya. Bila ada saja kepentingan peribadinya ( bukan homeschool ), dia akan guna cara ini untuk dapat info. Dalam setahun dua lagi....Insyaallah, dia akan jadi self learning student ( click here) sepenuhnya macam abang-abang. Hanya nak kena pantau aje...Masa tu...kita yang akan jadi student dia pula kerana mereka lebih cekap dari kita guna internet dan lebih berdaya saing. Remajalah katakan....mana nak sama dengan kita mak-mak yang banyak masa di dapur aje.

Untuk itu, kena masuk phasa kedua pembelajaran. Perkukuhkan keupayaan bahasa Inggerisnya. Kena mula buat vocabulary 10 perkataan sehari dengan bersungguh-sungguh dan bukan hangat-hangat tahi ayam seperti sekarang. Mereka mesti faham barulah tak merangkak-rangkak baca article dan menyebabkan boring dan terus tak minat. 

Ada masanya juga anak-anak buat perangai, almaklumlah cikgunya adalah ibunya tapi bila dicampur dan ditolak, bakinya sangat memberangsangkan. Proses pembelajaran homeschooling memerlukan kesabaran dan keyakinan. Perbanyakkanlah berdoa ...Insyaallah ada jalan, ada bantuan dan ada kejayaan.

Alhamdulillah....dengan bantuan video di bawah, cepat aje Hafidz faham pelajaran tentang phasa-phasa bulan. Sempat juga menceritakan peristiwa bersejarah  pada 20 Julai, 1969. Masa itu aku baru berumur 8 tahun. Walaupun baru berumur 8 tahun, aku ikuti segala perkembangan di TV 1 tentang landing on the moon ni..Memang minat sangat pasal astronomi. Agak-agaknya jika berpeluang sambung lagi pelajaran di universiti, aku pasti pilih kursus astronomi. (Buat masa sekarang dah pun jadi student di internet..... ) Masa tu...semua benda yang dijual di kedai mesti ada gambar apollo 11. Masih lagi ingat...beg sekolah, bekas air, bekas pensel dan barang-barang sekolah yang berkaitan, habis dicop dengan gambar apollo 11 dan 3 orang wira tu... Tak kurang jugalah di pembungkus makanan. Asal ada aje cop keramat tu...lakulah !!Teruja sungguh Hafidz setiap kali aku menceritakan kisah-kisah aku sebayanya dulu-dulu.

Jom layan apa yang Hafidz belajar.........

THE RELATIVE SIZE OF STARS AND PLANETS:




















PHASES OF THE MOON








FASCINATING FACTS ABOUT THE MOON:

Moon, the only satellite of the earth…
  • it was created along with earth 4.6 billion years back when a giant object had hit the young earth
  • the same side of the moon always faces the earth, such that we can never see the other side of the moon. this is known as tidal lock
  • moon is getting away from the earth at 4cm per year
  • After a million years the moon will start coming towards the earth, until it will come so near that it will break up and its particles will form a ring around the earth, just like the planet Saturn
  • moon’s craters seen from earth were described differently by eastern and western cultures
  • it is a cosmological coincidence that the size of moon and the sun looks the same from the earth, even though the sun is so much far away
  • because of the moon’s and sun’s same size, the lunar eclipse will cover the sun exactly in a beautiful phenomenon which is unique to planet earth only!
  • only 12 men have ever walked on the surface of the moon… the only cosmological object in the universe that man has ever stepped his foot on!

HOW DO CRATERS GET ON THE MOON?
Craters occur when objects such as meteors crash into the face of the moon. The reason that there are far more craters on the moon than on the earth is due to the lack of atmosphere on the moon. Where meteors burn up in earth's atmosphere, they are free to fall on the moon.




THE MOON LANDING:
It was the mission of Apollo 11 to land two men on the moon, then return them safely to Earth. It was one of the most historic events. It demonstrated what man can do with effort and ingenuity.

The Launch

In President Kennedy's speech to Congress, on May 25, 1961, he expressed a concern that the United States was falling behind the Soviet Union in technology and prestige. He challenged the nation to put a man on the moon before the end of the decade. On July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 launched from the Kennedy Space Center. Apollo Launch

The Moon Landing

On July 20, 1969, Commander Neil Armstrong became the first man on the moon. He said the historic words, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." A camera in the Lunar Module provided live television coverage as Neil Armstrong climbed down the ladder to the surface of the moon. The Moonlanding
The Lunar Module "Eagle" consisted of two parts: the descent stage and the ascent stage. The descent state provided the engine used to land on the moon. It had four legs, a storage area for experimental gear, and a ladder for the crew to climb down to the moon's surface. The descent module also served as the launch platform for the ascent module when it came time to leave.
The ascent module carried the crew back to the Command Service Module.

Walking on the Moon

To walk on the moon's surface, the astronauts needed to wear a space suit with a back mounted, portable life support system. This controlled the oxygen, temperature and pressure inside the suit. On the surface, the astronauts had to get used to the reduced gravity. They could jump very high compared to on Earth.
The crew spend a total of two and a half hours on the moon's surface. While on the moon's surface, the performed a variety of experiments and collected soil and rock samples to return to Earth.

An American flag was left on the moon's surface as a reminder of the accomplishment. Flag on the Moon

Driving on the Moon

In later moon landings, the astronauts used the Lunar Rover vehicle to help explore more of the moon's surface. Driving on the Moon

Orbiting

The Command Service Module "Columbia" consisted of two parts. The Command Module is the cone at the top, or front in this picture. The Command Module held the three man crew. It was the control center during the mission. It also was the re-entry vehicle for returning back to Earth. The Service Module at the bottom, or back in this picture, provided the propulsion and maneuvering capability for the space craft. Orbiting the Moon

After re-entering the Earth's atmosphere, parachutes opened to safely lower the Columbia into the Pacific Ocean. After landing in the Ocean, the crew were retrieved by a helicopter and taken to the recovery ship, the "USS Hornet." The crew and lunar samples were placed in quarantine until their health and safety could be confirmed.
The Command Module "Columbia" returned to Earth on July 24, 1969. Apollo 11 had successfully completed its mission. President Kennedy's objective to land men on the moon and return them safely to Earth had been accomplished.
