Description

Access to Space continues to become more than just a government accomplishment. As access to Space becomes more available, the opportunities to conduct more science, validate theories, and share in the limitless benefits of Space Exploration abound, it opens up a new classroom for academia to conduct some amazing research. According to the FAA Annual Compendium of Commercial Space Transportation: 2016 report there were 86 Orbital launches in 2015. As we all know, not all of these launches provided opportunity for academia to demonstrate technologies that they have developed in labs all across the country. We do know, however, that there were some institutions that have been able to capitalize on the ready access to space and accomplish amazing things. Come be a part of this interesting discussion and hear from a variety of panelist including a student’s perspective who flew an experiment on the International Space Station, those working as faculty, advisors, and also an Astronaut’s perspective on operating those experiments.
