Zero Gravity Flight
During the 2005-06 academic year SEDS-USA issued a
call for competitive proposals from SEDS Chapters to
fly in Zero Gravity. Six chapters proposed projects
they would be interested in flying in Zero-Gravity.
Despite funding issues, University of Washington SEDS
and the University of Central Florida SEDS were still
able to fly their projects late in the summer of `06.
This year SEDS National plans to again call for
competitive science proposals from member chapters.
These proposals will then be reviewed by SEDS Board
Members and Alumni, the best proposals being given
seats aboard a "SEDS Zero Gravity Flight".
The goal of this project is to provide the opportunity
to preform real science in microgravity to engineering
and science students at the undergraduate level, above
and beyond that which they would normally experience
during their education.
Interested students, chapters, and sponsors should
contact the Director of National Projects for
SEDS-USA, Joshua Nelson at: firstname.lastname@example.org
