This week on REACH: A Space Podcast for Kids we present the first episode of the new season of fellow Soundsington Media show Unspookable entitled "Book of the Dead.".  (Recommended for ages 8+) Unspookable is a family friendly look at the histories and mysteries behind your favorite scary stories, myths and urban legends. Each week host Elise Parisian discusses such topics as Bloody Mary, Charlie Charlie, and Ouija Boards to find the stories behind the scares.   Unspookable - Book of the Dead What do you think of when you hear the word mummy? Some of us may imagine a bandaged figure, arms outstretched, stumbling through the desert, but did you know that mummification of the dead served another purpose? Mummification is just a small part of a sacred ritual of Going Forth By Day as captured in something we call The Egyptian Book of the Dead. But this is no book at all as we will find out on this episode of Unspookable. Host: Elise ParisianWritten by: Ellenor Riley-ConditCreated, Produced, Edited by: Nate DuFortMusic Direction and Composition: Jesse Case: https://www.jessecasemusic.com/Logo by: Natalie Khuen http://nataliek.myportfolio.comYou can find Unspookable on Twitter and Instagram at:https://twitter.com/ImUnspookablehttps://www.instagram.com/unspookablepodcast/Unspookable is a production of Soundsington Media committed to making quality programing for young audiences and the young at heart.

The image of the print will may blurry, but that's okay.Hold the second magnifying glass between your eye and the first magnifying glass.Move the second glass until the print comes into focus where you will see that the print is both larger and upside down.Have a friend or family member measure the distance between the two magnifying glasses and write the distance down.Cut a slot in the cardboard tube about one inch away from the front opening, but do not cut all the way through the tube. The slot should be wide enough to hold the first magnifying glass.Cut your second slot in the tube the same distance from the first slot as your friend or family member wrote down. This is where your second magnifying glass will go.Place the two magnifying glasses in their slots  and tape them in with the duct tapeLeave approximately 1 inch of tube behind the second magnifying glass and cut off any excess tube remaining.Check to see that it works by looking at the printed page. You may have to adjust slightly to get the exact distances between the two glasses right so that the image comes to a focus.We'll post a photo of Brian and Meredith's telescope on our Instagram and if you're having issues we found a lot of similar plans online with the google search "how to build a telescope at home" ranging from simple like ours to very detailed plans.
