STUDENTS HOOK UP WITH NASA


 

Middle school students in Ellen Ferrier's science classes hosted a special visitor recently, Mr. Jack Ford.  Mr. Ford, an electrical engineer with Grumman Aerospace Corporation, chatted with our classes about his work on the Lunar Modules of the Apollo Space Program.

 

He presented interesting facts and shared the inner workings of the LM.  In fact, on six moon landings, the Lunar Module carried astronauts from the Apollo Command Module to the surface of the moon and back.  Amazingly, Mr. Ford's name is on the moon attached to one of the Lunar Modules descent stages that was left behind after a mission.  Mr. Ford is pictured here with sixth grade student, Heidi Cooper.
