There was a little crowd in mission control late on the afternoon of May 22 as Northeast High alums dropped in to see the latest advancements at the Project SPARC while the kids were running their annual, but still virtual, space mission. They weren’t disappointed.
There are caves on the moon. Sounds sort of spooky, but the “lava tubes” formed by ancient volcanoes provide great protection from the exterrestrial elements for Northeast High’s astronauts. A lunar cave can be fashioned into a home far, far away from home.
A Northeast High alum has donated computers and other equipment to the school’s Space Research Center, and, meanwhile, fundraising to keep the decades-old after-school science program going are continuing.
Some Northeast High students went to the moon this week. The trip wasn’t just for laughs, but they had a few getting there and back. And, since nobody died, we are happy to report the lunar mission ended on an up note.
