Teachers Academy at Martinsburg STARBASE

Berkeley County teacher, Samantha Sloan, takes a temperature reading of a thermal protection tile being blasted by a gas flame during a workshop for teachers hosted by Martinsburg STARBASE at the 167th Airlift Wing, Martinsburg, West Virginia, July 17, 2009. The tile, similar to the ones protecting the space shuttle, measured 900 degrees in the heated area but remained at room temperature on the other side. Todd Ensign, right, Educator Resource Center Program Manager at NASA IV & V Facility Fairmont University, led several activities on the final day of the workshop.
