  • Carthage participates in 2013 NASA SEED Program — Carthage Microgravity Program — Physics and Astronomy at Carthage — Carthage College
    NASA s larger Flow Boiling and Condensation Experiment scheduled for flight on the International Space Station in 2017 In the five years that we ve participated in SEED our team has been involved at the ground level in some really interesting research that is still being pursued at NASA centers across the country said physics professor Kevin Crosby chair of the Division of Natural Sciences at Carthage and Microgravity Team advisor This year s project is particularly exciting for the students because their work will have a direct impact on a long term flight experiment aboard the ISS Six years in a row The Carthage team is one of 15 teams nationwide selected for the 2013 SEED program and one of just two teams in the country selected six years in a row Carthage is known for having strong students in physics and engineering who get things done said Carthage Provost Julio Rivera That reputation exists within NASA and within the American Institute of Physics which recognized the Department of Physics and Astronomy for its high graduation rates and successful placement of graduates in STEM fields Being selected for SEED six years running is a thrill for Microgravity Team members It s amazing because we re a small private school and most of the SEED schools are universities with top engineering programs said Danielle Weiland 14 of Kenosha this year s team leader The team will spend the next six months designing and building their experiment In July they will travel to the Johnson Space Center in Houston to conduct their experiment aboard the Weightless Wonder Teams from five other institutions will fly with Carthage in July Massachusetts Institute of Technology Yale University California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo the University of Wisconsin Madison and the University of Nebraska Lincoln See a list of all 2013 SEED teams This year s project The space station and any spacecraft is basically an insulated frying pan Heat is generated by equipment and people but there s no way for the heat to get out Prof Kevin Crosby about this year s project The 2013 Carthage Microgravity Team will work on a project titled The Degassing of FC 72 The students must develop a method of removing dissolved gases from a liquid coolant in zero gravity gathering data that will help NASA develop efficient heat transfer systems for future spacecraft The space station and any spacecraft is basically an insulated frying pan Heat is generated by equipment and people but there s no way for the heat to get out Prof Crosby explained Elaborate systems of heat exchange rely on the flow of coolant through pipes much the way your refrigerator works Pipes carrying coolant are brought into contact with a hot environment the coolant absorbs the heat from the environment the coolant boils transferring the heat into vapor which rises to the top and away The problem Boiling does not work the same way in microgravity as it does on Earth

  • NASA 2008 — Features — Carthage College
    me it was fun fixing those problems and finding something that would work I m going into engineering and this whole program made me realize this is what I want to do Lunar dust causes health problems and messes up machinery said Kevin Crosby associate professor of physics and astronomy This lunar dust is very fine it s everywhere and Apollo astronauts had a real problem with it The particles are so small they can get right into lung tissues But Prof Crosby explained traditional filters won t work on the lunar surface and it would be impossible to build structures there without solving the problem Prof Crosby designed a filtration device and the five students built it Emily said the five students would brainstorm as a team come up with ideas and pick the best one Brad said he and his colleagues had a lot to do and worked hours each day building the rig I d say it was worth it I learned a lot Two Flights on the Weightless Wonder Students spent 10 days at the Johnson Space Center in Houston We had to tell them all about our project any safety issues and what we d do to prevent anything bad from happening Erin Martin 09 recalled It was pretty intense Every day we had to be prepared for the worst and hope for the best The highlight of the trip was two flights to an altitude of 39 000 feet aboard a plane that provides a reduced gravity environment similar to that found in space Describing parabolic maneuvers on the flights Prof Crosby said that the plane just sort of drops out of the sky for three miles It s indescribable the first time you experience weightlessness Isa said she asked one of the flight crew if they could spin me around at zero gravity I d seen astronauts spinning and twirling and I always wondered what it would feel like Erin recalled that we only had about 30 seconds of lunar gravity to test our experiment It was the strangest feeling I almost hit the ceiling and you felt so much strength in your body But she cautioned that if you turn your head too much you ll get sick At zero gravity you have no control she added You feel like you re swimming but there s no friction You get disoriented because you re not used to being able to walk on the ceiling While in Houston Erin also met an astronaut and undertook a test of her ability to function in a low oxygen environment I was breathing really heavily she said and found herself unable to answer simple questions Vibrant Physics Department At Houston most of the other teams were engineering students from much larger schools Prof Crosby feels Carthage s presence was a tribute to the College s physics program We have probably one of the most vibrant physics departments in the country for schools of our size he
