THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELED.
In 1985, the Discovery Space Shuttle carried 11 toys into orbit. Astronauts then took toys into space another three times, in 1993, 1996, and 2002. On all four missions, crew members carried along the questions of curious children, educators and parents who had suggested toy experiments and predicted results.
Now you can do these experiments here on earth with the same toys! Learning about physics has never been so much fun.
