" I would like to humanize the space age by giving the persective from a non- astronaut because I think the students will say, "this is an ordinary person, this ordinary person is contributing to history " and if they can make that connection, then they are going to get excited about history, they are going to get excited about the future, and they are going to get excited about space." Astronaut and much loved N.H. teacher, Christa McAuliffe

Why do experiments in Space?
It was important to Christa that students love science because science helps people. Experiments, done in space, help to find cures for diseases. This video shows how everyone feels when they learn that kids can go home from hospitals.
