Adventures

Adventure 1: Check the sky, is it safe?

Robo will first look at the moon through the telescope. He will use the telescope to monitor the sky and make sure that the sky is clear before he can safely launch. Robo will make sure that the flight conditions are safe, as well as the temperature and the humidity.

Adventure 2: Prepare for the journey

Now, Robo has to prepare his stuff before he launches. He has to make sure everything is in order as there is no room for mistakes here, the journey is long and there is no coming back except after a while. He has to check for his safety tools and personal stuff as well as check the status of the space shuttle and mission tools.

Adventure 3: On the way to the moon

In this Adventure, Robo will have to keep an eye on the dashboard readings and make sure everything is running smoothly. He will have to check the pressure, oxygen and fuel levels for any problems. While he is there, he will take advantage of the beautiful view out the window of the shuttle and snap some pictures.

Adventure 8: Let's prepare to go back

It's the end of the trip and Robo must prepare to go back home to Earth. He needs to pack his stuff and to be careful so he does not leave anything behind.
