  • Another Great Week of Mission X!

    We made some strong "bones!"

    Many great activities were completed this week and last week. Our favorite was Taste in Space! It took some bravery and trust on the part of the Bronchos, but they did a great job, and learned a lot about their own sense of taste as well as how micro-gravity can affect an astronaut's sense of taste.

    Good Luck and Have Fun!
