• Michigan Father and Daughter Launch Rainbow Dash Into Space

    What happens when you combine my State, with science, and ponies? You get one smiling Calpony! Over in Kalamazoo, a father and daughter team have been working on a project for three years with the goal of reaching space or at least getting as close as they can!

    The girl, 11-year-old Katherine, is a fan of ponies and has reasoned that since Rainbow Dash loves to fly she wouldn't mind taking a ride! The launch is expected to occur tomorrow with Rainbow making her way back to earth by parachute in the near future.

    Check out the full report and cute video here. And if Katherine does visit EqD, I just want to say well done! I hope you keep up your interest in science.
