Student Papers Catch NASA's Attention

As part of the Air Force JROTC program, every junior at R-MA has to take Exploring Space. Knowing that some students may wonder why, MSgt Stephen Pederson, USAF, Retired, works hard to relate the curriculum to the student’s everyday lives. Part of that means helping them understand that NASA does more than just explore space through its three directorates.
