Star Counts from the Shuttle

Most people have looked up at the dark night sky and have been amazed by the number of stars you can see. What if you were to try that from the Space Shuttle? Canadian astronaut Dr. Steve MacLean will do that during the current shuttle mission.

Dr. McLean had over 600 students do exactly this experiment this summer as part of the Star Count Project organized by NASA and the Canadian Space Agency.
