Back in 1991, when I was a NASA Challenger Center Teaching Fellow (one of the seven American teachers chosen in honor of Christie McAuliff and the Challenger Space Shuttle Astronauts) I received a $1000 grant to create this music video with my students at Jefferson High School in South Central Los Angeles. Carlous Galloway, an enterprising young rapper in my biology class, got inspired by the Marsville project and wrote the rap around which we created the song and video. This music video was packaged with the Challenger Center "Marsville" curriculum and put into thousands of schools. Hopefully one day all people, regardless of race, class, creed or social status, will be able to fulfill Carlous' dream of building a true "eutopia" on Mars..
