NASA University Research Centers Virtual Poster Session Oct. 24-31 and Symposium Nov. 8, 2012 highlights students’ NASA intern experiences.
NASA Chief Technologist Mason Peck delivers the keynote address for the opening of the NASA Center for Space Exploration Technology Research.
On Thursday, Sept. 6, NASA and The University of Texas at El Paso opens the NASA Center for Space Exploration Technology Research.
Dr. Kelvin Kirby joins NASA Center for Radiation Engineering and Science for Space Exploration graduate students Quincy Johnson, Ijette Foley and Jullian Norman for a NASA Student Leadership Series Conference event at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Students and scientists at Howard Beltsville Center for Climate System Observation (BCCSO) secure a moored balloon after it deployed sensors to obtain profiles of meteorological variables and pollutants in the atmospheric boundary layer. During a recent NASA P3-B Orion fly-over of the Howard Beltsville site, the sensor payload on the balloon supplied ozone, NO, temperature, relative humidity and aerosol concentrations.
