Davis Creek Elementary fifth grade class
also has a set of identical twins who worked together to finish the mirrors.
Above Mrs. Wagner, our school principal,
and Mrs. Hamilton, math instructor at Marshall University, take their turns
at grinding and polishing a mirror.
These students worked for several days
grinding and polishing our mirror and finishing the mirrors of the fourth
grade classes. Due to their dedication, hard work, and some frantic
after school work, all our mirrors were polished and sent on their way
to become part of StarShine III.
This is a photograph of the first StarShine
satellite that orbited Earth for about eight months. StarShine II
will be about the same size, while StarShine III will be much larger and
will orbit at a higher altitude and will orbit for several years.
