NCESSE is requesting, by 7:30 pm ET this evening, that all SSEP delegations currently at Wallops Island send an email update on their expected total attendance for the rescheduled January 9 launch. This will allow NCESSE to rapidly assess what the launch viewing site will be.  Send an email to jeffgoldstein@ncesse.org

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.
