Today in the clubhouse, we're having a space spectacular.

0:00:540:00:58

Stargazing Maggie joins us for some rocket-fuelled fun.

0:00:580:01:02

I'll be showing you how to do the astronaut in this week's cool move.

0:01:020:01:06

And Let's Go's Mason and Matthew explore a new world underwater.

0:01:060:01:10

Three, two, one - blastoff!

0:01:100:01:12

# Let's go! #

0:01:390:01:40

-My name is Mason...

-And I'm Matthew,

0:01:400:01:42

and today we're going on an underwater adventure.

0:01:420:01:45

-BOTH:

-Let's go!

0:01:450:01:47

Andy is a scuba diver.

0:01:490:01:51

He uses special equipment so he can swim underwater.

0:01:510:01:54

This wet suit keeps me warm in the water.

0:01:540:01:57

Now we're ready to be scuba divers, too.

0:01:570:01:59

What does it feel like being underwater?

0:01:590:02:02

It's like being in space, where you're weightless.

0:02:020:02:05

Astronauts like Tim Peake trained in a swimming pool

0:02:050:02:08

before going into space.

0:02:080:02:10

Do people always go scuba diving in a pool?

0:02:100:02:13

Well, today we'll be in the pool where it's safe,

0:02:130:02:16

but with practice you can go in the ocean,

0:02:160:02:18

where there's more to see.

0:02:180:02:20

-What equipment do you need?

-Come with me and I'll show you.

0:02:200:02:23

This is the scuba system.

0:02:230:02:25

The most important bit is this tank, which holds all the air.

0:02:250:02:29

Coming off the tank, we have our mouthpiece.

0:02:290:02:31

This helps us breathe underwater.

0:02:310:02:34

What we have here are the fins.

0:02:340:02:36

These are going to go on our feet

0:02:360:02:38

and make it a lot easier and quicker to go for a dip in the pool today.

0:02:380:02:42

Can you talk underwater?

0:02:420:02:44

We can't talk underwater, but we use hand signals.

0:02:440:02:47

So, this is "OK".

0:02:470:02:48

That's fantastic. We've then got this signal,

0:02:480:02:51

which means let's go up to the surface...

0:02:510:02:54

Let's go down...

0:02:540:02:55

If we have a problem, we signal like this.

0:02:550:02:57

So maybe your ears are hurting - you can go, "problem,"

0:02:570:03:01

and then point at your ears, so we know and can fix it underwater.

0:03:010:03:05

Now it's time to get in the water.

0:03:060:03:08

I want you to put one arm through there for me.

0:03:080:03:11

We put on the jacket first.

0:03:110:03:13

That's it.

0:03:130:03:15

And last we put on the mask.

0:03:160:03:18

We're going to descend down, so we give that signal, "down".

0:03:210:03:24

Andy teaches us how to swim underwater.

0:03:300:03:34

It's really cool and I feel weightless, just like an astronaut.

0:03:340:03:38

I'm telling Andy everything is OK.

0:03:380:03:41

-You're amazing.

-Yeah.

0:03:420:03:44

-So who's ready for some underwater games?

-Me!

0:03:440:03:47

We are throwing a disc underwater.

0:03:480:03:50

Discs move slower underwater than in air,

0:03:520:03:55

but the water makes us move slower, too, so the disc is tricky to catch.

0:03:550:04:00

The torpedo moves even quicker.

0:04:030:04:05

Good catch, Matthew.

0:04:050:04:07

We're having an underwater egg and spoon race,

0:04:100:04:12

using ping-pong balls instead of eggs.

0:04:120:04:15

We need to hold the spoon upside down

0:04:150:04:18

to stop the ping-pong ball floating up.

0:04:180:04:21

It's really tricky.

0:04:210:04:22

-We're doing underwater somersaults...

-And barrel rolls.

0:04:260:04:31

The barrel rolls were tricky.

0:04:310:04:33

You guys did absolutely fantastic. Here's some certificates

0:04:330:04:37

-saying you completed the Let's Go scuba diving class.

-Wow!

0:04:370:04:41

-Now can we jump in the pool?

-I think that's a good idea.

0:04:410:04:44

One, two, three - jump!

0:04:440:04:46

# The Let's Go Club

0:04:500:04:52

# Let's go! #

0:04:520:04:54

Wow, Mason and Matthew, that scuba-diving was brilliant.

0:04:540:04:58

Now, can anyone tell me what kind of person might need to scuba dive

0:04:580:05:03

to get ready for their job?

0:05:030:05:04

-Lifeguard.

-Yeah, maybe.

0:05:040:05:06

-A sailor?

-Shall I give you a clue?

0:05:060:05:09

Look over there.

0:05:090:05:10

-BOTH:

-An astronaut!

-Yes!

0:05:100:05:12

Astronauts train underwater

0:05:120:05:13

because it's a little bit like being in space,

0:05:130:05:16

where there's a lot less gravity and everything floats around.

0:05:160:05:20

Now, last time, we asked you

0:05:200:05:22

to send in your photos and videos all about space.

0:05:220:05:26

-Shall we take a look at them? ALL:

-Blastoff!

0:05:260:05:28

This is Kaya,

0:05:280:05:31

with her blasting-off rocket ship that she made out of cardboard.

0:05:310:05:35

And here's Frankie, wearing her super shiny rocket jet pack.

0:05:350:05:39

Out of this world!

0:05:390:05:41

Adam found his giant leaf on the walk home from his nanny's house.

0:05:410:05:45

Lucy likes drawing tigers, just like this one.

0:05:450:05:49

Rarr!

0:05:490:05:51

Isabella is a dinosaur fan,

0:05:510:05:52

and couldn't wait to make her spiky costume

0:05:520:05:55

after seeing it on Let's Go Club.

0:05:550:05:58

Abby baked these delicious cheese and herb scones

0:05:580:06:01

for her whole family. Yummy!

0:06:010:06:03

Lucy used our Make A Picture

0:06:030:06:04

to draw the clubhouse crew watching some fireworks.

0:06:040:06:08

Boom!

0:06:080:06:09

Fatima wanted to show us her two-handed hula hooping super skill.

0:06:090:06:13

Way to go!

0:06:130:06:14

Wow! Those send-ins are out of this world.

0:06:190:06:22

You're all stars - and that's perfect,

0:06:220:06:24

because visiting the clubhouse

0:06:240:06:26

we have got super space scientist Maggie from Stargazing.

0:06:260:06:30

-Hi, Maggie!

-Hello! Look, I'm wearing my wristband!

0:06:300:06:33

I like it, it's really starry!

0:06:330:06:35

-You're going to help us make these paper cup rockets.

-Definitely.

0:06:350:06:39

But first, has anyone got a space question for Maggie?

0:06:390:06:42

-Is the moon hot?

-No, the moon is actually very cold.

0:06:420:06:46

On Earth, we are surrounded by gases that help keep heat in,

0:06:460:06:49

but in space, the moon has no gas around it,

0:06:490:06:52

and so it's incredibly cold.

0:06:520:06:54

You'd have to wrap up warm if you were going there.

0:06:540:06:57

-Right, everyone, shall we get started?

-Yeah!

-OK.

0:06:570:07:00

First thing you need to do is take one of your cups

0:07:000:07:03

and place it upside down.

0:07:030:07:04

You're going to stick flames on, like that, using some glue.

0:07:040:07:08

Shall we have a go?

0:07:080:07:10

Put some glue on your cup and then we'll put some strips on.

0:07:100:07:14

All the way round. There we go. What colours have we got?

0:07:140:07:18

We need some more red, don't we?

0:07:180:07:20

-Is that enough?

-I need some red.

0:07:210:07:24

Maggie, what do flames do on a rocket?

0:07:240:07:27

Well, the flames are really important,

0:07:270:07:30

because a rocket can weigh as much as 100 adult elephants,

0:07:300:07:34

and so to get it into space you need a lot of energy.

0:07:340:07:37

So, what happens if you jump up?

0:07:370:07:39

You fall back down.

0:07:390:07:40

That's right - that's gravity pulling you back down.

0:07:400:07:43

So, we need the rocket to overcome the force of gravity

0:07:430:07:47

and get into space.

0:07:470:07:48

So we have rocket fuel, and we light it up,

0:07:480:07:51

it lets off a lot of energy and the rocket goes, "Whoosh!"

0:07:510:07:54

-Up into space.

-Now, take the other cup.

0:07:540:07:56

You might need a grown-up to cut four slits in the top of the cup.

0:07:560:08:01

Once you've done that, you can decorate it.

0:08:010:08:04

And you've got these.

0:08:040:08:06

-These are fins.

-Yeah.

-That will help it fly very straight.

0:08:060:08:09

We're going to do the fins with Sellotape.

0:08:090:08:12

This might be OK.

0:08:120:08:14

That looks perfect.

0:08:140:08:16

Let's put that one there.

0:08:160:08:18

Olivia, do you know what shape this is?

0:08:180:08:20

-A cone.

-It's a cone! That's right.

0:08:200:08:23

We're going to stick this on the top.

0:08:230:08:25

So, what we need to do is dip your rocket into the glue.

0:08:250:08:29

Can you do that?

0:08:290:08:31

That's it. Perfect.

0:08:310:08:33

And then pop your cone onto the top.

0:08:330:08:35

Brilliant!

0:08:380:08:40

Now, you'll need two people for this bit.

0:08:410:08:45

You need to get an elastic band,

0:08:450:08:48

and twist it into a figure of eight. Like this.

0:08:480:08:52

Then you need to lower it onto the base of the rocket.

0:08:520:08:55

Can you help me?

0:08:550:08:56

Brilliant. That makes a crisscross shape, like that.

0:09:010:09:05

Make sure you keep the elastic band really tight by pulling each end,

0:09:050:09:09

and this will make sure your rocket goes really high.

0:09:090:09:12

OK, astronauts, are you ready to see how high our rockets can go?

0:09:120:09:16

-Yeah.

-All you need to do is push down your rocket...

0:09:160:09:19

and let go, and that's it. Prepare the engines!

0:09:190:09:22

Ready for launch.

0:09:220:09:24

Three, two, one - blastoff!

0:09:240:09:28

Wow! That was great!

0:09:290:09:32

Thanks, Maggie, for coming to the clubhouse.

0:09:320:09:35

Thank you - it's been a blast!

0:09:350:09:37

If you and your friends want to make your own paper cup rockets,

0:09:370:09:41

why not give it a go?

0:09:410:09:42

Go to the website, and there's loads of help.

0:09:420:09:45

And if you manage to send it off to the moon,

0:09:450:09:47

why don't you take a video, or a photo, and send it to us?

0:09:470:09:51

Craig, what are you doing?

0:09:540:09:56

Oh, hi, Joanna. I'm looking for stars.

0:09:560:09:58

You can join me if you like.

0:09:580:10:00

Well, if you want to look for stars it needs to be dark,

0:10:000:10:03

and you need to look outside.

0:10:030:10:05

Yes, but I'm looking for other types of stars.

0:10:050:10:09

Oh, I see!

0:10:090:10:11

So, are stars always this still?

0:10:130:10:15

No, actually they're not.

0:10:150:10:17

Sometimes they shoot across the sky.

0:10:170:10:19

Oh, that's amazing!

0:10:190:10:20

There are so many stars, I don't know where to look.

0:10:200:10:23

I can help you with that. If you look carefully,

0:10:230:10:26

sometimes stars cluster together to make different patterns and shapes.

0:10:260:10:31

It's a bit like a giant game of dot-to-dot. Go, stars!

0:10:310:10:35

Oh, wow!

0:10:350:10:36

Our stars are in the pattern of the Plough.

0:10:360:10:39

-Yeah!

-If you thought that was cool,

0:10:390:10:41

you'll love our next fact-finding mission. Let's check this out.

0:10:410:10:45

Fact fans, today we're finding out all about space.

0:10:460:10:51

Satellite...

0:10:510:10:53

rocket flight...

0:10:530:10:54

black hole...

0:10:540:10:56

starry stroll...

0:10:560:10:57

icy comet...

0:10:570:10:59

Earth orbit...

0:10:590:11:00

space station...

0:11:000:11:02

gravitation.

0:11:020:11:04

UFO... Blastoff, go!

0:11:040:11:07

Let's get to those facts.

0:11:070:11:10

First up, astronauts cannot cry.

0:11:100:11:13

Sad, but true.

0:11:130:11:15

In space, there's no gravity to pull things down,

0:11:150:11:19

and that means that tears don't fall or flow.

0:11:190:11:22

Instead, they float, like watery bubbles -

0:11:220:11:26

or cling onto your face,

0:11:260:11:27

until little puddles form under your eyes.

0:11:270:11:30

Has anyone got a tissue?

0:11:300:11:32

Next, the footprints that astronauts left behind on the moon

0:11:330:11:37

will be there forever -

0:11:370:11:38

and it isn't because they didn't wipe their feet.

0:11:380:11:42

The moon has no atmosphere,

0:11:420:11:44

and that means it doesn't have any weather, either -

0:11:440:11:48

so there's no wind or rain to blow and wash away the tracks.

0:11:480:11:51

Next time, I'd suggest taking a brush.

0:11:530:11:55

Next, space is full of rubbish -

0:11:570:12:01

and it's mostly because of us.

0:12:010:12:03

Ever since we started exploring space,

0:12:030:12:05

we've been leaving things behind.

0:12:050:12:08

Bits of old rocket...

0:12:090:12:10

an astronaut's glove...

0:12:100:12:12

a camera, tools, and a toothbrush.

0:12:120:12:16

They're all floating around up there somewhere.

0:12:160:12:19

Maybe the next mission to blast off

0:12:190:12:21

should take some bin bags and do some tidying up.

0:12:210:12:24

And, finally - there are no green stars in space.

0:12:240:12:29

The colour of a star depends on how hot it is,

0:12:290:12:32

with all that gas burning inside.

0:12:320:12:35

Red stars are the coldest, and blue stars are the hottest.

0:12:350:12:40

And the star you know very well, the sun, is yellow,

0:12:400:12:45

with a temperature that's somewhere in the middle.

0:12:450:12:48

Just the right amount of heat to keep us toasty warm.

0:12:480:12:52

Fact.

0:12:520:12:53

# Let's go! #

0:12:560:12:58

Wow! Who would have thought that stars can come in different colours?

0:12:590:13:03

All those space-tastic facts have got me starry eyed!

0:13:030:13:06

Now it's time for the real stars of the show - your send-ins.

0:13:060:13:10

Glynn has drawn a smiley stegosaurus with his favourite stencil

0:13:100:13:14

and written the name all by himself.

0:13:140:13:16

It's dino-good!

0:13:160:13:18

Radhina is learning to recycle,

0:13:180:13:20

so she made this model house for her dolls

0:13:200:13:23

out of empty cardboard boxes and ice cream sticks.

0:13:230:13:26

Here's Rex with Egbert,

0:13:260:13:28

a cheeky little chappie

0:13:280:13:29

made from a boiled egg!

0:13:290:13:31

He's eggs-cellent!

0:13:310:13:32

Jasmine and Sasha have made these colourful trinket boxes

0:13:320:13:36

to keep all their treasure safe.

0:13:360:13:38

And lots of Let's Goers have been busy making club wristbands -

like Nicholas, Lauren and Joanie.

0:13:420:13:45

Welcome to the club, everyone!

0:13:450:13:48

Super solar send-ins! Thanks, everyone.

0:13:490:13:52

Now, if that wasn't spacey enough for you,

0:13:520:13:54

today's cool move will send you to a whole new galaxy.

0:13:540:13:58

It's called the astronaut.

0:13:580:14:00

This ace space move is one of my favourites.

0:14:000:14:04

It may look tricky at first, but if astronauts can do it,

0:14:040:14:07

then you definitely will be able to.

0:14:070:14:09

Here's how.

0:14:090:14:10

The first step is to step on this foot,

0:14:100:14:13

bend our knee...

0:14:130:14:15

and lift our other foot off the floor.

0:14:150:14:17

Then repeat. This foot onto the floor,

0:14:170:14:20

bend our knee...

0:14:200:14:21

and lift the other foot off the floor.

0:14:210:14:23

Remember to use your body and your head

0:14:230:14:26

as well as your arms,

0:14:260:14:28

so it looks like you're walking on the moon,

0:14:280:14:31

with zero gravity.

0:14:310:14:33

And that's it! The astronaut.

0:14:330:14:35

I'm going to be using this in the club dance later on,

0:14:350:14:38

so keep on practising.

0:14:380:14:41

Let's Go Club, permission to land.

0:14:410:14:43

Before I get carried away,

0:14:430:14:45

check out what these Let's Goers got up to

0:14:450:14:47

when they went on a stargazing camping adventure.

0:14:520:14:53

# Let's go! #

0:14:530:14:54

Hi, I'm Leo, and this is my brother, Lucas.

0:14:540:14:58

We really like finding out about space,

0:14:580:15:01

so we're going to have our very own stargazing adventure.

0:15:010:15:05

If you like looking at the starry night sky,

0:15:050:15:08

here's something you can do.

0:15:080:15:10

First we're going to make our very own star map

0:15:100:15:13

to find the patterns in the night sky.

0:15:130:15:15

Let's get gazing!

0:15:150:15:17

First we paint in the stars.

0:15:220:15:24

This group of stars is called the Plough.

0:15:270:15:29

It looks like a big saucepan.

0:15:290:15:32

Now that we've finished our star maps, we can get ready to stargaze.

0:15:320:15:36

We're getting wrapped up so we are all warm and cosy.

0:15:380:15:41

What are we going to see in the sky?

0:15:430:15:46

I've got binoculars.

0:15:460:15:48

These will help us see the stars better.

0:15:480:15:50

Lucas is packing our torches.

0:15:500:15:52

Always make sure the sun has disappeared

0:15:530:15:56

before you go stargazing, because it can hurt your eyes.

0:15:560:16:00

Can you see anything, Leo?

0:16:150:16:17

Can't see any stars. It's too cloudy.

0:16:170:16:20

Too dark.

0:16:200:16:22

It's still cloudy, so we decided to make our own constellation.

0:16:220:16:26

Look, it's the Plough!

0:16:260:16:28

THEY LAUGH

0:16:280:16:29

We loved gazing at the stars in the night so we did this...

0:16:320:16:36

# Let's go! #

0:16:390:16:40

OK, space invaders, are you ready for the club dance?

0:16:420:16:46

Join in at home. Just follow the beat.

0:16:460:16:48

Oh, Ade, I've been practising your astronomical cool move.

0:16:480:16:52

I love the astronaut!

0:16:520:16:54

Looking good, Joanna!

0:16:540:16:56

-Let's go!

-Side to side.

0:16:560:16:58

Astronaut!

0:17:220:17:24

# Go, go, go, everybody dance... #

0:17:270:17:29

You know what? We need some shiny stars to brighten up this place.

0:17:290:17:33

-Come on, Let's Goers!

-Come on, guys!

-Come on!

0:17:330:17:38

Let's go!

0:17:380:17:40

Side to side!

0:17:400:17:41

-# Let's go!

-Go, go, go, everybody dance... #

0:17:430:17:47

And jump!

0:17:470:17:49

Whoo! Jump, jump, jump.

0:17:490:17:51

-# Let's go!

-Go, go, go, everybody dance now... #

0:17:510:17:55

Roll! Forward. Back.

0:17:550:17:58

Whoo!

0:17:580:18:00

-# Let's go!

-Go, go, go, everybody dance... #

0:18:000:18:04

Astronaut!

0:18:040:18:06

# Everybody dance now... #

0:18:100:18:13

That's all the space adventures for today in the clubhouse -

0:18:130:18:17

but there's loads more on the CBeebies website.

0:18:170:18:20

Including a special poem from space scientist Maggie

0:18:200:18:23

on the Let's Go Radio Club - take a listen.

0:18:230:18:26

Next time we're going Christmas crackers,

0:18:260:18:28

so send in your fabulous festive stuff.

0:18:280:18:31

-Grab a grown-up and get tinsel-tastic! Whoo!

-See you soon!

0:18:310:18:35

# Let's go! #

0:18:370:18:39

This week the clubhouse reaches for the stars with a space special!

Let's Goers Mason and Matthew explore a new world underwater when they try out scuba diving. CBeebies stargazing scientist Maggie Aderin-Pocock joins us for some rocket-fuelled fun, helping Joanna make and launch paper-cup rockets, and Craig spots some shooting stars with a bit of a difference!

Abe has a new, anti-gravity Cool Move - The Astronaut - to watch and learn. There are out-of-this-world animated facts all about space, and more super Send-Ins from CBeebies viewers.

Plus everyone is singing and dancing with the Get Set, Let's Go! song, and a boogie-brilliant Club Dance.
