See how many words you can think of that are about space. For example, stars or planets or the names of rocket ships that have explored space. Then look around the grocery store. How many items have space names? What about cars on the road? How many models have space names?

Questions to Ask:

How many cars are named after planets or constellations? (Ford Taurus, Dodge Aries, Toyota Corona).
What about food or household products? (Milky Way, Mars Bars, Moon Pie, Starburst, Comet Cleanser).
Why are space names good advertising? (People think space is interesting and future-oriented).
