ISS & mice

Okay, so I've a made a big deal out of the space station. But can you blame me? I mean really, it soars overhead at an average height of 220 miles above the surface of earth at over 17,000 miles an hour. It has allowed a continual presence of someone in space for almost nine consecutive years.

So, for students interested take a peek at the following websites: the official NASA site, the wiki site, more overview, and Boeing's site on the ISS.

An finally, if you'd like to see the ISS the definitive guide to viewing all satellites is heavens-above.

Okay, now mice...the ultimate sciencie thing...levitation. Really.
