Science education is especially exciting when it’s applied to the real world. Our school has the chance to go one step further: Apply it OUT of this world

"Ambition: The Film" Official Trailer
Watch the complete "Ambition: The Film" [A Must See!] | HD 1080p
http://youtu.be/H08tGjXNHO4 "Ambition"—Tomek Bagiński’s latest project—tells of a young apprentice (Aisling Franciosi) struggling to master nanotechnology on an alien world and prove herself to her enigmatic master (Aidan Gillen).
Film website:  http://ambitionfilm.com

Called, suitably, "Ambition", it stars Game of Thrones' Aidan Gillen and actress Aisling Franciosi as master and apprentice on an alien world. In the seven-minute drama, the pair discuss the presence of water on planets and the origin of life. These are themes ESA's Rosetta probe hopes to address in its study of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

Next month, the spacecraft will drop a small robot on to the surface of the 4km-wide ice body to analyse its chemistry. Theory holds that comets may have been responsible for delivering water to the planets early in the Solar System's history. They could even have delivered important chemistry that helped to kick-start biology. The mission intends to test these ideas.

UPDATE: SMAP Launch Now No Earlier than Saturday. Our Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory launch has been delayed and is now targeted for Jan. 31, pending completion of minor repairs to the United Launch Alliance Delta II launch vehicle. During inspections following the Jan. 29 launch attempt, minor “debonds” to the booster insulation were identified; a standard repair is being implemented. A launch attempt on Jan. 31 would take place at 9:20 a.m. EST. SMAP will produce the highest-resolution maps of soil moisture ever obtained from space.

Students selected for winning designs of 3-D printed tools for International Space Station astronauts. The challenge asked students in grades K-12 to use their imagination to create and submit a digital 3-D model of a tool they think astronauts could use in space. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1BEtsh2

Look up in January! Jupiter's moons are putting on an amazing show this month. The orbital path of the moons is tilting edge-on to Earth and the sun. This lineup makes it possible to watch the moons pass in front of each other and even eclipse each other with their shadows. Get all the details, including where to find Jupiter in the sky this month, in this edition of What's Up.

Today we began filming the crowd funding video! Our students are not only dedicated scientists, but simply top notch, hard working, dedicated and giving! This project has so many positive aspects, including the community we are building. Different grades, different specialties all coming together for a common goal. We can't wait to show you what we are working on!
