The day people saw the Earth and the Moon together – level 1

18-09-1977

Voyager 1 is a probe. The probe travels through space. The probe starts its way on September 5, 1977. The probe wants to fly to Jupiter. It takes one year to fly to Jupiter.

13 days after the start, the probe sends a picture to the Earth. It is a very special picture because the Earth and the Moon are in this picture together.

It is the first time when people can see both worlds in one picture.

Difficult words: probe (a spaceship which travels through space with no people on board), space (the area between stars and planets), both (two).
