Juan Carlos Gomez, from the University of New Mexico, Las Cruces, at left, collects samples with Steven Walsh, a geology student from the University of Alaska, Anchorage. FOR THE RECORD: Airborne science program: A July 25 article about a NASA-run science program incorrectly referred to the agency's DC-8 plane as small. It exceeds the Federal Aviation Administration's upper limit of 12,500 pounds for small aircraft. The caption with a photo accompanying the article incorrectly identified a student as Steven Walsh. It was Andrew Hart of the University of New Hampshire.
