GEMS NASA Team Aims GAVRT Instruments at Deep Space!

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!
