Research Team to Fly High in NASA Program

A team of undergraduate engineering students from Boise State University is gearing up for flight week in late March as part of NASA’s Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program, also known as Microgravity University. The team was one of eight chosen from colleges and universities across the country to successfully propose, design, fabricate, fly and evaluate a reduced gravity experiment in the Systems Engineering Educational Discovery segment of the Microgravity University program.

A video explaining more about microgravity and why it is an important tool is available at the NASA Web site.
