Student scientists from Syracuse, New York, say they plan to finish their ants-in-space experiment started aboard space shuttle Columbia in honor of the seven fallen astronauts and their commitment to scientific discovery.

“[The students] feel that their experiment should not be in vain, they want to finish their project,” said Charlotte Archabald, the students’ teacher at Fowler High School in Syracuse. “They feel that what happened with the shuttle was a tragedy, but they need to fix it at NASA and move on. Space needs to be explored, research needs to be done.”
