USNO Response “These are all very nice projects, and I'm preparing to add these to the WDS database. After I get them added, I'm going to have the papers placed in the manuscript collection of the USNO library in such a way that it will be easy to add them in subsequent years… Please pass along my congratulations to your students for a job well done. I think it is this sort of appreciation of the `doing' of science that helps make teachers aware of science as more a process than a body of knowledge.” Dr. Brian Mason
