Dear Amy: Where can I find cool adventure game websites? — Gurleen, New York
Dear Gurleen: A great place to go for adventure games is National Geographic Kids, http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/kids/games. Click on Interactive Adventures for some great virtual adventures. You can explore the New World 400 years ago, film critters in Kenya, or study an Egyptian tomb to figure out who is buried there. Click on Action Games to kayak down a river, explore a shipwreck, visit Pluto and more. Another fun place to go is Cyberchase, http://pbskids.org/cyberchase/quest. Join the cybersquad and complete four different quests that will have you collecting special items and solving problems along the way. Have fun!
Dear Amy: How many space shuttles launch per year? — Raquel, El Paso, Texas
Dear Raquel: Unlike older spacecraft, space shuttles can be reused. The three space shuttles NASA uses are named Atlantis, Discovery and Endeavour. In recent years, shuttles were launched three to five times per year. In the '90s, NASA launched as many as eight shuttle missions per year.
