William's new Halloween costume

Soviet scientist William Bessai-Saul and "Spudnik"
William combined Halloween and his science project today by presenting his research on Sputnik in the guise of a 1957 Soviet scientist, complete with fur hat, slide rule, and a copy of the communist manifesto. Margaret came to the school at lunch time to pick up the 1/2 scale sputnik replica and his teacher went out of his way to come outside and compliment the presentation. I asked William if they managed ot get through all of the presentations, which is when he pointed out that he was the only one who presented; the others all handed in papers instead (form/style of the project had numerous options). He began with the discussion of "spudnik" and its self generating electrical power, but once corrected, he continued with Sputnik.
