NASA Researchers build on the work of those who have gone before. New experiments intersect with published research; current investigations expand the scope of earlier work; new tests verify and challenge old results. And so it goes with all research, including microgravity flame studies. NASA engineers, academic researchers and scientists of all stripes have built on past experiments and findings to understand the fundamentals of combustion, fire sensing and fire suppression both on...

NASA has selected 24 undergraduate student teams to test science experiments under microgravity conditions. The teams will fly during 2012 as part of the agency's Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program (RGEFP). The teams will design and build their experiments at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston and conduct tests aboard an aircraft modified to mimic a reduced-gravity environment. The aircraft will fly approximately 30 parabolas with roller-coaster-like climbs and dips to produce...

NASA is offering undergraduate students the opportunity to test an experiment in microgravity as part of the agency's Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program. The program is accepting proposals for two different flight experiences in 2012. Teams interested in conducting student-driven research should submit a letter of intent by Sept. 14. This step is optional, but serves as an introductory notice that a team plans to submit a proposal for the competition. Proposals for student-driven...

A team of Dartmouth engineering students was recently selected to participate in NASA's 2011 Microgravity University which offers a Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Program. This NASA program enables undergraduate students to "propose, design, fabricate, fly and evaluate a reduced gravity experiment of their choice." The experience includes "scientific research, hands-on experimental design, test operations and educational/public outreach activities." The selected team of four...
