Shuttle Showcase: Firsts
The space shuttle has defined an era and broken boundaries both in space and on Earth. Among the hundreds of people who have flown on the shuttle, many have been firsts -- for their race, their country or their profession.
Shuttle Showcase: STS-1
The launch of STS-1 marked the beginning of a new era in human spaceflight.
Shuttle Showcase: STS-30
May 4, 1989... the five-person crew of Atlantis prepares for the first deployment of a planetary spacecraft from the shuttle. A little over six hours after launch, Magellan and its mammoth Inertial Upper Stage booster are released from Atlantis' payload bay to begin Magellan's voyage to peel back the layers of the cloudy planet of Venus.
Shuttle Showcase: STS-31
The Hubble Space Telescope is deployed from space shuttle Discovery on STS-31
Shuttle Showcase: STS-49
Everyone knew the maiden flight of Endeavour, the successor to the fallen Challenger, would be challenging. In the end, it turned out to be that, and more, as the crew ultimately made history. Rick Heib, Pierre Thuot and Tom Akers salvaged the rescue of the crippled Intelsat satellite, performing the first, and to date, the only three-person spacewalk to manually capture Intelsat.
Shuttle Showcase: STS-124
The second in a series of flights to assemble the Japanese segment of the International Space Station saw the mammoth Kibo module delivered to the complex complements of Discovery and its crew on the STS-124 mission. Kibo, the Japanese word for "hope" would house dozens of experiments and serve as a platform for external payloads brought to the complex on subsequent Shuttle flights and the Japanese "Kounotori" H-2 Transfer Vehicle cargo ship.
Shuttle Showcase: STS-125
After four previous trips to repair and upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope, it was time for the Shuttle to make one final service call to install new, advanced instruments, batteries, gyros and insulation on the astronomical icon. Following 5 complex spacewalks, Hubble was left virtually brand new --- and ready for many more years of unprecedented science.

Overview of glycolysis
This 13 minute video is about one of the four phases of cellular respiration called glycolysis. Glycolysis is the process in cellular respiration that produces ATP's.
