  Title: STS-54 MS3 Helms uses DSO 802 & Physics of Toys frog toy on OV-105's middeck
  Description:
  STS-54 Mission Specialist 3 (MS3) Susan J. Helms with a frog swimmer 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 swimmer frog 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
