Due to a launch delay of Mission 10, SpaceX Mission 11 has been postponed until early August 2017. As soon as we have an official launch date, we will be communicating the information to all our donors. SpaceX will provide a live webcast of the launch, we will provide a link to the portal for all to watch live. Be sure to stop back to get the details! Updated information can also be found on the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics website, as well as our new Stockton University SSEP website.
SSEP student researchers and their mentors will be traveling to Cape Canaveral for the launch of their experiment. Students will be taking live video and pictures from the launch via SnapChat. We will be sure to share their exciting adventures with you!
Next week, two Stockton SSEP students, along with their mentors, Drs. Pam Cohn, Jason Shulman, Tara Luke and the Dean of the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Dr. Peter Straub, will be attending the SSEP National Conference at the Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. to present their experiment poster to their peers and the scientific community. Please wish them the best!
Ertz said, “It feels a little surreal that something that I helped think of is actually going to the ISS, but I’m also really glad and excited. Planning the experimental procedure was a challenge, but it was rewarding working as a member of a team because we were able to bounce ideas off of each other and find solutions.”
