    This PDF resource includes an article about scientific discoveries in outer space, as well as accompanying activity ideas perfect for learning at home or in school:

    • Debate whether spending time and money on observing outer space is important, or whether we would be better off using these resources to save our own over-heating planet?
    • Imagine the radio burst is actually a coded message from another life-form and you have managed to crack the code. Write what you think they might be trying to tell us.
    • Use persuasive writing to create an advertisement, like those you find for holiday companies, promoting Earth as a great place for aliens to visit for their vacation.
    • What is the closest star system to our own? Create a fact file including how far away it is, how long it might take to get there and what we know it includes.
