You know, stories like this give me hope. They give me faith in the human race as a whole, and they leave me encouraged that regardless of how bad things get in the world, there will always be someone like these students who will take the initiative to see a supposedly insurmountable challenge and…well, surmount it. (Is that a word? It is now.)
Literally, on a shoestring budget and without a massively bloated government agency behind them, these students TOOK PICTURES OF SPACE FROM THE UPPER ATMOSPHERE!
Tell me why we shouldn’t be putting more money into science and math programs in schools?
The pictures are amazing, and the story even moreso. I hope it’s students like these who end up “in charge” as they get older.
The can-do spirit is alive and well.
