At first, I thought NASA had used Papyrus to set the type in the signs but I don't think they did (God Bless America).
So what typeface is it?
Note: Screenshots taken while video was streaming on NASA's site.
So the consensus is that yes, indeed it is Papyrus. Maybe even Papyrus with a stroke.
In related news, when I quickly typed Papyrus in InDesign to see if I was having a bad typographic nightmare (before I wrote this post) this is what I saw:
This is why I questioned if it was Papyrus. Now I'm wondering if InDesign was trying to automatically fix the aspects of the typeface that make Papyrus, Papyrus.
I never thought I would spend this much time thinking about this typeface. Now, back to focusing on what NASA does best—the shuttle launch.
President Obama has a goal that 100 percent of students should be college or career ready, and in the next decade, most jobs will require at least some post-high school education. The opportunities for high school graduates are declining and generally offer lower earning potential. But are we educating students with the right kind of post-secondary education to meet the demands of the workforce of the future?

A student's personal, home, community, and school characteristics should not be studied in isolation -- all these variables contribute to student performance, and they are strongly interactive. Recognizing these interactive dynamics, we integrate various theoretical perspectives to explain the variety of reasons that some students fail and others succeed. In particular, we build upon Rossi and Gilmartin's (1980) conceptual framework for the study of educational performance."
