Did you know...

… that on this day, exactly 22 years ago, the Russian module Zarya was launched into space, giving a start to assembling the International Space Station – the largest single structure humans ever put into space?

Honoring this breakthrough, we ask you to take part in our end-of-year fundraising campaign which will help us publish even more adaptations on scientific discoveries such as this article about astronomical dust. Please help us inspire students to pursue careers in the STEM field. Every little bit helps!

We aim to raise 1000$ during our month-long campaign. This is just about 30$ a day!

Can you donate at least 5$ towards that goal?

Thank you. -Tanya
