Here's more than you probably want to know about me...

On this page, I'll introduce myself. I'll talk about what my school, work, and family are like, or about some of the hobbies, sports, or clubs that I'm involved in.

More about Me.

Let's see what do I want to tell you. Well for my staff elective at my high school I'm taking journalism, and for my art elective I'm taking filmmaking. My film is about my water rockets if you were wondering. I'm also part of a after school soccer club. There are very few kids at our school, and they are almost all boys. I wish there were more girls. There are 84 boys and 26 girls to be exact. Ever year we will be adding a new class. Since we are freshmens we will always be the oldest kids at the school, which is kinda cool.

Today I finally got my palm. It is so cool! We can take pictures, download games, and doodle. It even has a mp3 player, but we have to buy a memory card to download music. We can also beam stuff from one palm to another. So we can pass notes in class. Not like we would but we could.

This week I just started lacross. It is a fun but very challenging game. Just like building water rockets. I was looking up the history of lacross on the Internet and discovered that it was originly devoloped by the Native Americans during the 1400's. They had between 100 to 1000 indians per side and the goals were sometimes several miles apart. So there was a lot of runing. The goal post were usually a rock or a tree. A goal was scored by throwing the ball throught the goal post. Very much like the game played today. The goal post were six to nine feet apart.

Lunar Module

Two astronauts board the Lunar Module for the final leg of the journey to the Moon. A main rocket ensures a soft landing, while a second rocket is used for takeoff. Because the module operates on the airless moon, it does not need to be aerodynamically shaped. 

In the Science Museum there is a replica Lunar Module. By clicking on areas of this photograph you can look at photographs of the replica and find out what the parts of the Module are and what they are designed to do.
