Space Shuttle Discovery: STS-51D

STS-51-D was the 16th Shuttle flight and the 4th flight for Discovery. This video includes a post-mission press conference in which the astronauts talk about their activities and experiences in space. A publicity highlight of the mission was "TOYS in space" — a series of informal studies on how common toys behave in zero gravity. Experiments were conducted with a yo-yo, gyroscope, wheelo-o, knuckle jacks, paper plane, paddle ball, magnetic marbles, slinky and toy car.
