Teachers Fly on Reduced Gravity Aircraft

A total of 70 teachers got to participate in NASA's Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program.  The flights took place last week at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.  The aircraft flies parabolic flight paths that creates periods of weightlessness.  This is an important part of NASA's astronaut training program.  The participating teachers were chosen through NASA's Teaching from Space and Explorer School Programs.

Leland Melvin, NASA Associate Administrator for Education and two-time space shuttle astronaut, said the teachers are enthusiastic and their enthusiasm is contagious.  It will be passed on to their students as they have a new zeal for teaching science, engineering, mathematics, and technology.  Mark Riccobono, executive director of the National Federation of the Blind's Jernigan Institute, also participated in the flight.  He is blind.
