RAHWAY — Students in Rahway’s fifth grade Gifted and Talented classes visited Buehler Challenger & Science Center in Paramus on Jan. 23 and undertook a simulated mission to return to the moon. During the first half of their mission, the students flew the spacecraft from the Earth’s orbit to the moon. On the way, they built and launched a probe to the lunar surface. During the second half, the crew recovered a second probe and determined which of two potential sites were better for the establishment of their lunar base, and they landed the crew at the site.

The students will be holding a “press conference” to answer questions about this journey at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 19, in the Rahway 7th and 8th Grade Academy cafeteria, just prior to the Board of Education meeting.
