NCESSE is pleased to announce that the SSEP teams flying experiments on STS-135 have finalized their experiment designs, and the final concentrations of all experiment samples, as well as other details of the experiments, have been approved by ITA and NanoRacks. The experiments are now ready for flight!
This week, the student teams are shipping their flight-ready samples to Kennedy Space Center, where the samples will be loaded into the MDA mini-lab starting on July 5. The following day, ITA will turn over the MDA, as part of the CREST DreamUp payload, to NASA for Shuttle integration. Two days later, on July 8, the experiments will head into space aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis.
Congratulations to all STS-135 teams for their hard work in preparing their experiments for flight!
