Can anyone tell me why in Rocket buongiorno, and some other greetings are written as 2 words.  Have noticed in several other learning  programs written as one word.

Ciao!  I have noticed this as well and even asked my Italian friend, who says it doesn't really matter.  However, I think that technically, “buongiorno” is one word, while “buona sera” and “buona notte” are two words.  If you see “buon giorno,” that would mean literally a “good day.”  For example, “Today is a good day," while “buongiorno” would mean “good morning.”
