Land a Spacecraft on Target Demonstration

Design a zipline to land a marble on a target. You’re the engineer in this activity. When NASA sends astronauts to the Moon, they will have a spaceship called the Gateway where astronauts will live while they orbit the Moon. They will use a human landing system to travel down to the lunar surface and back up to the Gateway. Your design will deliver your passenger to its target landing spot, just as the human landing system will carry Moon explorers to theirs.
