Initial Program and Expansion

This web site was originally constructed for the internet design competition ThinkQuest in the summer of 1997. It went on to win semi-finalist status (top 10% of the sites submitted). The coach for that year was Mrs. Joanne Hermann. A second site called "SPACE: Scientific Prospect of Astronomical and Cosmological Exploration" was submitted in the ThinkQuest competitions for 1998 and 1999, but did not win any awards. There were two coaches those years: Mrs. Joanne Hermann and Mrs. Susan Cioffolletti.

In the winter of 2002, Stuart thought that it would be a good idea to combine the two sites, for SPACE was never very popular, but Journey Through the Galaxy (JTG) was. Also, the JTG site was much larger, and the SPACE site had many links to the JTG site, so it made sense to simply combine the two. The SPACE site was updated and expanded, along with JTG that winter; SPACE now makes up the "Exploration" section of this JTG site.
