Former Astronaut to Make BLOSSOMS Lesson

December 15, 2010

As some of you may know, Kathy Sullivan is a three-time astronaut for NASA and the first woman to walk in space. She flew on the mission that deployed the Hubble Space Telescope. We are excited to announce that Kathy has agreed to make a BLOSSOMS module, "Physics in Zero Gravity." This BLOSSOMS video will rely heavily on NASA-provided footage of Kathy and other astronauts performing activities while orbiting the earth, activities that will demonstrate physics principles in zero gravity.
