LONG DISTANCE PHONE CALL

Dec 20, 2010

Evergreen Museum

By Kasey Richter, Director of PR and Marketing

While aboard the International Space Station, astronaut crews participate in live, in-flight education downlinks. Downlinks are approximately 20 minutes in length and provide students and educators the opportunity to interact with crew members aboard the ISS through a question and answer session. 

 This past spring, the Museum and the McMinnville School District technology department submitted a proposal to NASA to host an ISS downlink. It was approved in September and confirmed for Jan. 19. The exact time of the downlink will not be confirmed until closer to the event.

 Due to limited seating in the Evergreen IMAX 3D Theater, the Museum and MSD hosted a district-wide essay and art contest for K-12 youth to win a chance to attend the ISS downlink in the IMAX Theater, which resulted in approximately 50 winners.  

A random selection of these winning entries will be uploaded to this blog leading up to the downlink.

The ISS downlink will also be broadcast on the NASA website and on Channel 11, McMinnville’s community television station. Classrooms and community members can experience the downlink along with the astronauts and students in the IMAX.

The Museum is excited to share this wonderful experience with the McMinnville community and we hope that you enjoy these winning entries as much as we did!

Indeed, the Shuttle is considered by some as a flriuae. Too expensive to operate, too complex, too long to prepare between flights, only reaches low Earth orbit, etc, etc. Yet the fact that Discovery is 25, Atlantis is almost 24 and Endeavour is 18 is a testament to how well these crafts were built, maintained, and used and the dedication of the people in this program.

Iguemlante este Boluda estuvo 1 año lesionado, ahí perdió todos los puntos, pero ya volvió hace bastante tiempo y todavía no puede pasar la barrera del los 1000 mejores. Así son las vueltas del tenis.

So for the Varidnbelt game there were almost two workers for every actual paying person at the game. If you cut out the players from both teams that drops it even more. I never heard of counting players as part of those attending a game. Is that something new? http://qujaiaqfz.com [url=http://erwvqbyugwv.com]erwvqbyugwv[/url] [link=http://egshqtz.com]egshqtz[/link]
