Space Movie: Robotic Astronauts
by: Mr. Fugate’s Group

Robonaut is a humanoid robotic development project conducted by the Dextrous Robotics Laboratory at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas. Robonaut differs from other current space-faring robots in that, while most current space robotic systems (such as robotic arms, cranes and exploration rovers) are designed to move large objects, Robonaut’s tasks require more dexterity. The core idea behind the Robonaut series is to have a humanoid machine work alongside astronauts. Its form factor and dexterity are designed such that Robonaut can use space tools and work in similar environments suited to astronauts.

Revealing Planet Red
by: Mrs. Harris’ 8th grade team

A team of five 8th grade students from Foley Middle School took on the exciting task of making an original documentary about the explorations and findings from the Mars’ Missions. Mars has long been one of the great mysteries of our galaxy, yet through the use of the rovers, such as the Opportunity, we have gained a great deal of knowledge. For example, after the discovery of gypsum, a mineral formed in water, scientist now have proof that there was once water sustained on the surface of Mars. Nasa’s newest rover, Curiosity, is scheduled to descend in August of 2012. What will come from the findings of this incredible new rover? Does Curiosity hold the key to gaining an understanding of the Martian environment and it’s ability to sustain life?

Are We Alone? Kepler and the Search for Extrasolar Planets
by: Mr. Burns’ Class

In 2009, NASA launched the Kepler Mission with one main goal in mind: to find out if there are habitable planets orbiting other stars in our galaxy. Thanks to the technology we now have available, for the first time in human history, we have the ability to detect planets outside our own solar system. Mankind has always been intrigued by the question of our place in the universe. NASA’s Kepler Mission is a huge step in finding out if the universe is teeming with life or if it is unique to our own planet. Where is Kepler looking for these planets? How does it find them? What are the implications of finding these habitable planets, or even life itself, elsewhere in the universe? What amazing discoveries has Kepler already made? All of these questions are discussed in this new documentary produced by students from Farristown Middle School.
