ISS - A Home in Microgravity:
Launch Support Hardware

This webcast will discuss the needs of Life Science experiments in the space environment compared to Earth's environment. Launch Support Hardware (habitats) give NASA the ability to launch experiments aboard the shuttle, fly them in the ISS and then astronauts prepare them for the ride home to Earth.

NASA Why? Files
Case of the Mysterious Red Light

In "The Case of the Mysterious Red Light," the tree house detectives accept the challenge of trying to find the cause of the unusual red sunrises and sunsets in their community. They use scientific inquiry and Problem-Based Learning to learn about light, volcanoes, and weather. The tree house detectives get a little help from the famous magician, Franz Harrary who helps them to understand that "seeing is not always believing!"

A NASA "Why?" Files Kids' Club 3rd grade classroom in Hampton, VA tells the tree house detectives about the three types of volcanoes, giving them a valuable clue to the mystery of the red sunrises and sunsets. Community experts and NASA researchers also help the tree house detectives "dust off" their thinking caps to realize that the case may "erupt" before their very eyes.
