Who discovered space?

 

Emily and BRAYDON


On July 14th NASA headquarters had a discussion in Washington, D.C. The scientists discussed a space plan to find life in outer space. Space was likely founded millions of years ago. NASA is still looking for life in the solar system. NASA is mostly looking for life on Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. People believe the first person on earth discovered space but no one had space ships or telescopes yet. Other people believe the first person to discover space was Tycho Brahe along with other people. No one probably knows who did discover space now because it was probably millions of years ago and back then no one had technology and everyone from those times are dead now. How did someone discover there was no gravity in space? In the 18th century measurements at sea level and on tops of mountains showed that atmospheric pressure decreased. That is when no gravity in space was discovered. What is NASA? NASA is all about discovering new stuff about space and NASA is also a place where people get sent up into space.

How do Animals get rabies?
Mason and Alison

Animals can start off with rabies when they are born. These animals are Racoons, Bats, Skunks, and Foxes. Animals get rabies when they get bitten or even scratched by an animal that has rabies. They can also get rabies if saliva gets in an open cut, or a wound. The most likely animal to get rabies is a dog, because they are always outside and around a lot of different animals. People are able to get rabies. They can get it if a dog bites them, licks them, or it rubs it nose against their hands or any part of their skin. If a human gets bitten by any animal with rabies, and they don’t give medicine to the virus their brain can swell up and they can die. If they are not mammals they can’t get rabies. It can only infect mammals. Animals with rabies are usually known to have white foam coming out of their mouth. Rabies are only in the saliva. It is a virus. It is called virus neurotropic lyssavirus. There is a medicine to treat rabies it is called Postexposure Prophylaxis. To get the special medicine in your body you have to get a 5-inch needle in your stomach. For dogs, if they have rabies they will live for 2-3 days then there body weakens and they eventually die, unless they are treated before 3 days.  Every 10 minutes someone dies from rabies, because something bites them, scratches them, or licks them. If an animal or human gets bit and the animal has rabies, it changes their behavior so they won’t think properly, so they try to commit suicide.
