The Miami Mission Control Team consisting of teachers Thomas Gantt, Todd Doucimo, Cynthia Veiga, and Erin Abramoff have devised an experiment to determine whether corn ear worms can survive or the pupation rate affected by a zero gravity space flight, with the ultimate purpose of being utilized in some capacity in an interplanetary colonizing. We have created this blog to allow our students the opportunity to comment and keep up with what each school is doing regarding this experiment.

Miami Mission Control Tours Johnson Space Center
TFS gave us an amazing tour of the Johnson Space Center: the National Buoyancy Lab, where astronauts train, and the Mission Control Center. NASA’s latest rover was also on display for the public. We aslo got to see the NASA team preparing for the final shuttle launch next week and working with the International Space Station. Awesome!
