Opportunity to participate in the 2nd Student Spaceflight Experiments Program


November 15, 2011: The National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) announces an immediate opportunity for communities across the U.S. to participate in the second Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) mission to America’s National Laboratory in space—the International Space Station (ISS). Reflecting International Space Station operations, Mission 2 is also available, on a limited basis, to communities internationally.

Mission 2 to ISS provides for an experiment design competition March through May 2012, and ferry flights to and from ISS for selected flight experiments in September and November 2012.

NCESSE stands ready to help interested communities in the U.S. in identifying needed funding.

Participating communities must be aboard by February 27, 2012. Program operations in all communities begin no later than March 5, 2012. Critical milestones are provided below.

All interested communities are urged to contact NCESSE as soon as possible to explore participation in Mission 2 to ISS.
