In science this week we have been investigating journeys into space. We have been looking at the planets in our solar system. We then decided that we were going to plan a journey to Mercury - the closest planet to the sun. In order to go so close to the sun we decided that we needed a space suit which would keep our astronaut cool so we conducted an investigation into different materials and how cool they kept ice cubes.
