*THREAD on 'SATs ban'* 1. As the ‘ban SATs’ debate rumbles on, I was interested to see @RosieDBennett piece in @thetimes criticising idea to ban SATs, with the @PTE_Campaign arguing poorer children would suffer from the banning of SATS: https://bit.ly/2KQfFT6 . (Thread 1 to 11)

Anyone who is exploring the planets with children would find this useful. You can also embed it as a gif in Smart Notebook https://i.imgur.com/5vqwYRt.gifv  Actually, exploring the solar system/suns or not...it's still very interesting

When we talk about the enormity of the cosmos💫, it’s easy to toss out big numbers, but far more difficult to wrap our minds around how large, far & numerous celestial bodies really are. Join us for a cosmic journey to see the size of our Milky Way galaxy: https://go.nasa.gov/2GgurgJ
