> BECOME PART OF SPACE HISTORY -- HELP NAME THE NEXT STATION MODULE
>
> The International Space Station is growing, and NASA's Node 2 is the 
> next U.S. pressurized module scheduled for installation on the 
> orbiting laboratory. The node will provide more room for station 
> crews to live and work, but it needs a name.
>
> Students in kindergarten through grade 12 attending U.S. schools and 
> children of American personnel overseas are being asked to help NASA 
> name the module and become part of the history of the station. The 
> module is at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla., and is targeted for 
> launch in late 2007. The node will be a connecting port and 
> passageway to additional international science labs and space supply 
> vehicles. It also will be a work platform for the station's robotic 
> arm.
>
> Name the International Space Station Node 2 Challenge requires 
> students to work together as a class or school to create their own 
> Node 2 model. Students will name their node, write a brief 
> description explaining the choice and take digital pictures to send 
> to NASA.
>
> The submitted image of the model will not be judged, but it will be 
> the ticket to enter the name challenge. Submissions will be reviewed 
> by a panel of NASA scientists, engineers and educators. The deadline 
> to submit model images and names is Dec. 1. The winning entry will be 
> announced in early 2007. To register a school or class, teachers or 
> administrators should send an email to: NASA-ESC@nasa.gov. For 
> information about Node 2, visit:
