Rocket Angles

 

With the success of the Space X mission this month, why not try your own space mission. Can you use the protractor to work out how to hit the aliens?

 

You'll need to rotate the protractor so that 0 degrees is along your rocket, then work out what angle you need to use to hit the alien.
