Albany- Fourth and fifth grade students in St. Teresa's Astronaut Club are having their first discussion about what caused the Shuttle Columbia to explode. While many students seem to have a better understanding now, some say their dreams of flying into space may change.

Rocket scientist, Dr. Darrell Penrod, encouraged students to pursue their dreams and learn as much as they can about science. While it may take a while for students in the Astronaut Club to get over their fears, teachers say they believe at least one future NASA astronaut is sitting right there in this classroom.

Dr. Darrell Penrod served as a consultant to the United States Army and taught at major universities all over the United States.

The Astronaut club meets twice a month. They do science experiments, go on field trips and participate in competitions.
