A NASA spacecraft in orbit around the moon has sent

back five dozen new images of the lunar surface including a view of the

far side with Earth in the distance. Don't thank scientists for it.

Fourth-graders from Emily Dickinson Elementary School in Bozeman, Mont.,

directed the spacecraft to snap pictures as part of a project headed by

Sally Ride, the first American woman in space. (AP)
