Students of St. Joseph Catholic School, Imperial, Missouri have been learning about space at school and have specially designed a flag. Astronaut Dr. Sandra Magnus of Belleville, Illinois has promised to take this flag on her next trip into space. 

Magnus is scheduled to be amongst the crew of STS-135-ULF7, she is currently in training and scheduled to fly into space in the summer of 2011. This mission will carry Raffaello - a Multi Purpose Logistics Module.

Magnus has promised the children that she will take a picture of the flag, which will have the earth in the background, whilst she is on this space flight.
