Fitchburg, MA: Monty Tech student Brittany loading samples into the FME at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has honored all the SSEP researchers, their teachers, their families, and communities participating in the historic SSEP Mission 1 to ISS with a feature article at NASA.gov. It is a recognition that these student researchers are part of America’s Space Program in the 21st century, and a tribute to this next generation that will take the human race to new frontiers.

The National Center for Earth and Space Science Education, and NanoRacks, would like to thank NASA for their unwavering support of SSEP, and the tens of thousands of students it touches.

We invite you to read the feature article, which in turn links to articles from the participating communities written by the SSEP community leadership. Through this feature, each community has been given the chance to tell their story of how this program has touched lives by providing a conduit for curiosity, ownership in learning, immersion in real research, and the joys of learning.
