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.
