Speed of Light: Lost in the Mail

A "lost" science fair project report arrived at Science Buddies today. The project was apparently found loose in the US mail system somewhere in the postal routing process. Surprisingly, the person that found it didn't simply toss it in the recycling but looked closely enough at the report to realize it is a student's work and that the student was working on a Science Buddies project idea.

The report was forwarded to us here at Science Buddies.

The report is based on the Science Buddies Measuring the Speed of Light with a Microwave Oven project idea and was written by Simon Hong for Mrs. Reed. (The mail was sent to us by a postal department in Miami, FL.)

If you know Simon or Mrs. Reed, can you let us know?
