Impact on SSEP Experiments and Submission of New Samples, Due to NASA Announcement of New No-Earlier-Than May 10 Launch

We provided a schedule for 9 student teams to re-submit fresh experiment samples based on a no-earlier-than May 8 launch date in a SSEP National Blog Post dated May 1, 2011. It required arrival of samples at the payload processing lab no later than Thursday morning, May 5.

In light of NASA’s announcement yesterday (May 2) that the launch is now no earlier than May 10, we have asked NanoRacks and ITA to advise us as to the new required sample arrival date and time in light of the new no-earlier-than May 10 launch date. We will advise all student teams via this SSEP National Blog as soon as we get new information from NanoRacks and ITA.

The Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) is a program of the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) in the U.S., and the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education internationally. It is enabled through a strategic partnership with DreamUp PBC and NanoRacks LLC, which are working with NASA under a Space Act Agreement as part of the utilization of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory. SSEP is the first pre-college STEM education program that is both a U.S. national initiative and implemented as an on-orbit commercial space venture.
