U.S. Students to Continue Ants-in-Space Experiment

author: John Roach
submitter: Kathryn Hobbs
description: This report follows up on students from Fowler High School in Syracuse, New York who worked with help from Syracuse University researchers to design an experiment on harvester ants that was brought aboard the Columbia shuttle. "[The students] feel that their experiment should not be in vain, they want to finish their project," said Charlotte Archabald, the students' teacher at Fowler High School in Syracuse. "They feel that what happened with the shuttle was a tragedy, but they need to fix it at NASA and move on. Space needs to be explored, research needs to be done." This article also links to an article that was done in January that provides more details about their ant experiment.
