This extension activity supports Time for Launch - Activity 1.1 in Chapter One. In this activity, students learn about the two parts of the Soyuz and their functions. Students can then make their own Soyuz with either balloons, a UKSA template, or by designing their own and using craft materials. Students can examine images of the Soyuz capsule to determine which materials they should use.
