EL PASO - One group of El Paso Community College students sent their science project soaring - literally.

Early College High School students sent their experiment up with the Endeavor shuttle.

They wanted to test the effects of microgravity on E. Coli bacteria.

But they only received part of their experiment back once the shuttle landed, making the scientific findings irrelevant.

They still don't know what happened, but they've been told they can send another experiment up on the last shuttle, Atlantis.

I wish more people were interested in science and advanced mathematics. Setbacks are unfortunate however, there is the chance to conduct the experiment again and on the last shuttle mission no less! Don't give up. Einstein didn't give up. Nor did Bernhard Riemann or James Clerk Maxwell, to name a few. I am interested to learn what we can from this experiment. Good luck!
