Well this is just too good to not share. As a child, I always dreamed of being an astronaut and bouncing around on the moon. But then I quickly realized I wasn’t smart enough, strong enough, or basically good enough for anything close to that.
But that doesn’t mean you should feel like the space program isn’t in your students’ respective futures. While the shuttle program may be dormant, that doesn’t mean the actual vehicles are worthless.
In fact, the Space Shuttle Atlantis is a fascinating and awe-inspiring machine worth sharing with your class. Luckily, a writer from Engadget went inside and made a video of his experience. He tours just about every inch inside and out in a rare visit to the shuttle. If you love space, science, or being in awe, then this video is a must. Enjoy!
