I was really excited to hear from a high school friend of mine today advising me that she had been selected and awarded one of 150 tickets to attend the NASA space shuttle launch that is scheduled for Friday, July 8th (Sat or Sun if the weather is bad).
My friend, a Connecticut teacher, is very enthusiastic, a great role model and motivator for any student. She will be given a "behind the scenes" tour of NASA tomorrow and will be observing the launch on Friday -3 miles from the launch pad (where the count-down clock is located). She is documenting her tour and the launch on her blog. The whole thing is very exciting! Here is the link to her blog: http://www.researchameleon.com/
