This replica of the 17th century ship Godspeed was under full sail when it cruised past the Statute of Liberty in New York harbor. A team from NASA traveled with the Godspeed to six East Coast ports during the summer with an interactive exhibit highlighting the connections between the adventurous men and women who settled in Virginia almost 400 years ago and NASA's plans to explore space and establish a presence on other worlds. NASA's exhibit gave an estimated 190,000 visitors the chance to make a personalized "space postcard," take photographs as an astronaut or settler and win prizes in a NASA trivia game. The Godspeed -- an 88-foot replica of the ship that brought the first English colonists to America -- acted as a floating museum, educating more than 456,000 visitors in six cities about exploration of the past.

Kauai Cave Wolf Spider

The Kauai cave wolf spider is a mid-sized (0.50 to 0.75-inch) hunting spider that has completely lost its eyes as part of its adaptation to life in lava tubes. Instead of building webs, it chases and grabs its prey or may utilize sit-and wait ambush tactics. Unlike most wolf spiders that produce 100 to 300 spiderlings per clutch, the Kauai cave wolf spider is believed to produce fewer that 30 spiderlings per clutch. Newly hatched spiderlings are unusually large and are carried on the back of the female for only a few days.
