We did it! Student scientists at GEMS took control of a ten-story, 850,000 pound radio telescope to collect information about the surface of Jupiter! After weeks of student training the large, dish, located in the Mohave Desert in California was handed over to fifth grade students in Glastonbury, CT by NASA last Thursday. Data was collected from Jupiter that will add to a data base of on-going research used by NASA scientists.

Nice work, everyone! There is a place for you at NASA!


  1. Congratulations, 5th grade Scientists! What kind of data did you collect about Jupiter’s surface? Why is NASA needing this data?
