B.C. students’ space project delayed again

But then, this is rocket science. Delays are common in space launches. They may throw some in at random just so people don't expect them to go off on time - who knows?

Four boys from McGowan Park Elementary School in Kamloops, B.C., had won a contest to have their experiment join 17 other student projects from across North American on a trip to the orbiting station.

But the amateur experiments — along with a payload of supplies destined for the space station — were destroyed on Oct. 28 when a NASA-contracted rocket exploded in a spectacular fireball in eastern Virginia.
