Resources

Lockheed Martin partnered with Discovery Education to develop lesson plans, activities, and other resources. With your help, we can prepare and inspire this generation to reach new heights.

How much do you weigh on Mars?
Mars has about 40% the gravity of Earth, so multiply your weight by .38.
How do you sleep in zero gravity?
Astronauts usually sleep in sleeping bags that are tied down.
Why do you grow taller the longer you are in space?
In zero gravity your vertebrae will slightly expand, increasing your height about 3%.
How old are you in martian years?
A Martian year is 687 Earth days, almost twice our 365-day year. So if you’re 28 on Earth, you’re barely a teenager on Mars!
