    The weather has been beautiful here in New England and Team USA Sharon is getting ready for the Mission X 2014 challenge.The late fall season also means that our future astronauts are wrapping up their fall fitness assessments, and preparations will soon be underway for the launch of Mission X 2014 with our US and international friends.. We can't wait!!!

    We have also had some of our students participate in a favorite after-school activity, "Space Camp", where the kids build, design and launch water bottle rockets. With the launch of the Orion EFT1 less than a year away, we are very excited to try out our own Orion vehicles-stay tuned for more information!!!!!!!!

    Best Wishes to all of our friends on board the ISS, both now and with next month's upcoming mission!!!
    We welcome our returning participating nations and we look forward to working with more new partners for the upcoming year!
