Mich. teens' science experiment conducted in space
TROY, Mich. (AP) -- Science experiments from two Michigan high school students and a young man from Egypt have been performed aboard the International Space Station.
Former science television personality Bill Nye hosted a live online video stream of the experiments on Thursday.
It marked the culmination of the YouTube Space Lab competition that challenged kids to design a science experiment to be conducted by astronauts 250 miles above Earth.
Dorothy Chen and Sara Ma were named winners in March in the 14- to 16-year-old age group. The Troy High School students' experiment asks the question: "Could alien superbugs cure disease on Earth?" Amr Mohamed from Egypt won the 17- to 18-year-old age group for an experiment about spiders.
YouTube, Lenovo and private space exploration company Space Adventures organized the competition.
Snyder: Don't let special interest stop new bridge
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Gov. Rick Snyder has called on West Michigan business leaders to oppose Ambassador Bridge owner Matty Moroun's ballot proposal designed to block a planned new bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario.
Snyder backs a proposal for a Canadian-financed international bridge. He told the West Michigan Policy Forum in Grand Rapids on Thursday that the bridge project will "create jobs with no obligation to Michigan tax payers."
A Moroun-backed group collected signatures to place a proposal on the Nov. 6 ballot to require a statewide vote before a new bridge can be built. Moroun says the Canadian-backed project would impose costs on Michigan residents.
Snyder says the public "shouldn't let one special interest override the best interest of 10 million Michiganders."
