  Title: STS-54 MS3 Helms uses DSO 802 & Physics of Toys fish toy on OV-105's middeck
  Description:
  STS-54 Mission Specialist 3 (MS3) Susan J. Helms with a fish toy on the 
  middeck of the Earth-orbiting Endeavour, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 105, 
  demonstrates some of the physics of toys to students watching on television 
  (TV).  The demonstration was part of Application Specific Preprogrammed 
  Experiment Culture System Physics of Toys (ASPEC) and Detailed
  Supplementary  Objective (DSO) 802, Educational activities. Through
  telephone and TV  downlinks, Helms fielded questions from students at
  Shaver Elementary School  in Portland, Oregon.  The fish was used to
  demonstrate Newton's third law of  motion and the conservation of angular
  momentum.  The entire collection of  toys will be videotaped for an
  educational program to be distributed to  schools in the fall of this year. 
  Helms wears an Oregon Trail t-shirt. This  scene was downlinked at
