A Arlington Heights Boys Scouts Project Is Headed To Space!

Jeez, when I was a Boy Scout, all I wanted to do was go camping and throw rocks!

I was amazed when I saw on the news last night that the Arlington Boy Scouts Troop 209 has a project that NASA is sending into space!

The Boy Scouts want to see how DNA mutates in space and spent two and a half years putting this project together!

If the DNA mutates different in space, it could help with all kinds of medical research!

The E-Coli that’s being used for the experiment is on a rocket now but will eventually end up on the International Space Station!
