Northrop Grumman Foundation Weightless Flights of Discovery Kicks Off Year Four

"The Northrop Grumman Foundation is kicking off the fourth year of its Weightless Flights of Discovery Program, flying a total of 120 science and math teachers on four microgravity flights over the next two weeks. As part of the company's goal to inspire the next generation of scientists, mathematicians and engineers - critical areas of learning and career development where the U.S. has fallen behind globally - the Weightless Flights of Discovery program provides educators with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to prepare for and participate in micro- and zero-gravity flights during which they will test Newton's Laws of Motion with a variety of planned experiments. In addition to Albuquerque, flights are also scheduled in Detroit (Sept. 24), Norwalk, Conn. (Sept. 29), and Washington, D.C. (Oct. 2)."
