Okay, so what's new in Galaxy Explorers?  Let's start off with  the news.  


Galaxy Explorer uniform vests can now be ordered.  The cost is $20.00.  Uniforms should be in by January.  Uniforms can be ordered through our on-line store (coming soon) or through your Mission Team Leader.

Two lucky Galaxy Explorers in  Goddard Space Flight Center Mission Teams (MD) took to the skies recently thanks to the NASA Goddard Flight Club.  The club flew clothes and food to needy families in Pennsylvania under the Wings of Warmth program.  But this time Galaxy Explorers were there and had the time of their lives experiencing first hand the joy of flight.
