    Space Experiment Module and Space Day Team Up

    Now With Photos !!!

    The Space Experiment Module (SEM) Project had an extraordinary exhibit for Space Day activities on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on May 21, 1998. Space Day, a nationally available program, was a terrific opportunity for students and educators to learn about space and space flight. The CAN DO Project contributed experiments and decals that flew on Space Shuttle flights STS-80 and STS-85. Get all the details at the Goddard Space Center SEM Site.
