Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about space. Space is a continuous, empty area or expanse that is available, free, and limitless. It is an infinite three-dimensional space where things move and behave in relation to one another.
It is the area above and surrounding our planet where neither air nor light can be spread. It is a void that is empty of any material in which sound cannot travel. Only when the earth is viewed from space does it appear circular. Just land and sea are visible. Because there is no gravity in space, objects float in the air.
The first satellite, known as Sputnik, was launched into space by the former Soviet Union in 1957, marking the beginning of space travel. The launch of several satellites and probes into orbit. This is done to keep an eye on the planet, gather information about the temperature and weather, support contemporary navigation systems, study distant celestial bodies, and conduct space-related scientific research. On April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first person to enter space.
While operating in space, Sunita Williams, an astronaut, achieved a number of firsts. She is most recognized for her spacewalks and work on the International Space Station. She broke the previous record for the longest space journey by a woman and gave thousands of kids and students a glimpse of life in orbit. She praised the view of the planet as breathtaking and claimed she could sit at the spacecraft’s window and gaze at it for hours. Thank you.
