Sohel is also a fifth year student, but he lives in Auckland New Zealand (which is a really cool place that i would LOVE to visit).

four: Ayla 9/30 "How Much Does the Sky Weigh?"
Ayla is a sixth grader a little ways north of Mobile in Robertsdale, Alabama. She gave an excellent description of how heavy the sky is and an explanation concerning how it doesn't crush us all. My favorite part was her comparison of "5 million billion tons" (the weight of the sky) to "about 570,000,000,000,000 adult Indian elephants". See her post here.
