Overall pretty good, but:

(1) Get some higher resolution images.

(2) Less text.  Presentations should use bullets to summarize, not full sentences and paragraphs.
NEW MUSIC VIDEO:
STS-125 DREAMS in HD!

Nice effort all the same. At least you've got the right mission number, which NASA press kits struggle with ;)

I liked it.  But yes, you might want to shorten the first slide... maybe into two or three slides?

I quite like it. But as mentioned above, you need the hi-res images. Just look in the STS-123 gallery here for the patch and crew photo: http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/gallery/images/shuttle/sts-123/ndxpage1.html

For the individual astronaut's photos, I would actually recommend wikipedia as they seem to have all of them on there in a decent resoloution. :)  


To unclutter the first page maybe use bullet points like so:

Payload:

  • JEM ELM-PS
  • SPDM 'Dextre'

Suggestions:

-put only one patch on the first page, two is redundant
-put the launch date in the same text box as the name of the mission, also put the shuttle name there (you don't mention the name)
-two text boxes are redundant, no need to mention Kibo and SPDM twice

Make a second slide that shows the Kibo module and describes it.

Too many slides about the crew.  Should have more mission information, like individual mission goals, timeline, image of the station with Kibo attached, etc.
