"You have to see this"

In the know. In the Times.

Are you able to see the trail of smoke in the sky when the space shuttle takes off?  Perhaps you have felt the sonic boom, or wondered why the dishes are all of a sudden rattling in the cupboards on a clear blue afternoon.  The space shuttle program is set to shut down this year, and there are only three more launches left on the schedule.  The first is this coming Friday, May 14th.  Check the options on page 1B of today’s Times for different ways you can see or experience the shuttle launch!

Did you knoe that math, science and technology are all employed daily in space engineering programs.  Today’s space explorers continue to expand our horizons and contribute to our knowledge of the universe.
