Some Miscellaneous NASA Stuff

Here's an education program I hadn't heard of before: High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH): http://www.nasa.gov/offices/education/programs/descriptions/HUNCH.html

Oh yeah: and the Ares Projects have a three-year progress video out there for the taxpayers' edification (the emphasis is there because there are some folks out there who believe Ares is still in the "drawing board" stage). If you'd like to see it, click here (link modified 1/12/09). It's about 18 minutes long, so be patient with the download time. My buddy Jason did a hell of a job on condensing three years into that amount of time, and the video people did their usual outstanding job showing actual progress toward the Moon.

Thanks, Bart. Can you give me the low-down on the Ares project?
re: HUNCH: Which came first? The name or the project :)
Lastly, re: the new language. Have you looked into this? http://www.livemocha.com/

I tried it when I first started learning Mandarin but found I need the pressure of a weekly (live) tutor to light a fire under my behind.
