A Podcast on the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) has just been posted at the 365 Days of Astronomy website. Bob Hirshon, Senior Project Director for Media Programs at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) recently interviewed Dr. Jeff Goldstein, NCESSE Center Director, and the creator of the SSEP National Program. The short interview covers a number of topics, such as program vision, the opportunity for students to propose real experiments to fly aboard STS-134, the network of SSEP participating communities, how to think about experiment design, and the vision for the future.
