Tuesday during ISP we learned about the space shuttle program and how rockets & orbiters (satellites) work. That afternoon, students stayed for "movie night" where we watched the movie The Right Stuff.
"Today we learned about the space shuttle and [watched a] movie." -Fauntaye
"I learned that the space shuttle is almost like rocket and airplane. . . . They have a few parts [like] external tank, solid rocket booster, and main engines" -Noah
"When [space shuttles] take off, the huge external tank releases and the orbiter (looks like airplane) goes to space." Rain
"I learned that [astronaut candidates take a] lot of tests, studies, and exercise. . . I think the movie is awesome." Noah
"Since I watch[ed] the movie, I learn[ed] something more interesting. . .. . [Mercury 7 astronauts used] teamwork and tried to achieve the mission." -Rain
