This is pretty kool stuff! These guys remind me of some things I did with a friend back in Jr. High after the Russians launched Sputnik. Many kids got interested in telescopes and model rockets. These people are a bit older but certainly are showing the spirit of innovation that we really need as a country. I was glad to hear that they are involving some local high schoolers in this effort. Thanks for sharing this with us. No pun intended, but this is very UPLIFTING!
