Congratulations! CT kids worked in the GEMS science lab to take control of an 850,000 pound NASA Goldstone Apple Valley Radio Telescope (GAVRT) located in California! Students connected with NASA scientists via a laptop in the lab to aim the 34-meter radio telescope dish into deep space and collect data emitted from a Black Hole. “We actually saw it move, shouted one excited student!”
A big “Thank you!” goes to NASA and our friends at the Deep Sky Network in California!
