Pizza Hut has purchased the right to put its logo on the world's largest proton rocket. The logo is 30 feet tall and will be located on the fuselage of a 200 foot rocket. The rocket will be used to launch the permanent living capsule of the International Space Station, a joint venture of 16 countries. It is estimated that five-hundred-million viewers worldwide will tune into the launch.

Pizza Hut is also using the rocket launch as an opportunity to develop a space theme and materials for its national reading incentive program called BOOK IT!®. The 2000-01 edition of BOOK-IT! will focus on the theme Lift Off To Space and feature materials designed to encourage interest in the International Space Station, space exploration and science reading.

These materials will be distributed to more than 800,000 classrooms across the U.S. reaching nearly 20 million elementary school children.

Materials found in Baloo's Bugle may be used by Scouters for Scouting activities provided that USSSP, Baloo's Bugle and the original contributors are cited as the source of the material.
