Combining Dreams, Fiction and Science to Achieve the Impossible.

(Hazard, Ky) – Many times reality starts with a dream.  A vision.  A need to change.  A desire to make things different.  And what some see as fiction, others see as possibilities and an ultimate reality.  We are not supporting fake news or fake science.  We are talking about envisioning a future, and working toward making it happen.

John Goodlette of Hazard, Kentucky dreamed of building and flying airplanes – not an easy vision for a youngster born in the 1930’s in eastern Kentucky.  He went on to engineer the first successful landing of an earth spacecraft on another planet (Mars). Watch the incredible story of turning dreams into real science below.

Dataseam Sci-Fi Project  The Dataseam Sci-Fi Project gives your students a chance to set their dreams in motion.  What can they visualize?  What world can they create?  What do they see for near or long-term space exploration?  Movie, Written or Art projects are not due until March 1st, but they should start dreaming today.  See the complete program details.

Display of John D. Goodlette memorabilia is on display at the Challenger Learning Center of Kentucky in Hazard.
