  • Students' knowledge skyrockets after workshop at NASA facility — Carthage News — Carthage College
    Program explained Prof Crosby chair of the Natural Sciences Division at Carthage We see student access to the NASA Sounding Rocket Program as an exciting next step for our space sciences program at Carthage Carthage students already conduct research for NASA aboard NASA s Weightless Wonder zero gravity aircraft as part of NASA s Systems Engineering Educational Discovery program The Carthage Microgravity Team has participated in the program every year since 2007 one of just two colleges in the country selected for SEED five years in a row Now that our students have learned to develop basic payload experiments we will work this year on translating our continuing microgravity research to the sounding rocket platform Prof Crosby said Sending their work into suborbit The Carthage team was one of 14 from colleges across the country to participate in this year s RockOn workshop Students learned how to assemble electronics and program software to endure the rigors of space flight The difficulty wasn t insomuch what we were doing but how fast we needed to do it Kevin Lubick said The Carthage team along with 34 students and faculty from other colleges and universities spent three days building their payloads NASA engineers then secured each school s payload inside canisters and integrated them into an improved Terrier Orion suborbital rocket The payloads were tested for two days to ensure their safety and mechanical integrity before the 35 foot tall rocket was launched on June 21 Students observed the launch from the launch platform a few hundred yards away as the rocket reached a height of about 73 miles This year s RockOn participants started a new tradition by signing their names on the sounding rocket We could only see the rocket for about the first 30 seconds of flight but those 30 seconds were awe inspiring Kevin said Watching the rocket take off from a quarter mile away was like being at an air show with F 18s firing their afterburners only louder and more intense The rocket splashed down into the Atlantic Ocean after a 20 minute flight and the payload sections were retrieved and the experiments recovered Program has impact on students space sciences program The students plan to incorporate the lessons learned at the RockOn workshop into their current research as members of the Carthage Microgravity Team The team has designed and built a novel method of measuring fuel in space and tested the zero gravity fuel gauge aboard NASA s Weightless Wonder in Spring 2011 and 2012 Although those experiments have yielded promising results Prof Crosby said the sloshing of the fuel in the model spacecraft tank makes accurate measurements difficult The plane provides a weightless environment for 20 to 30 seconds at a time A sounding rocket provides about five minutes of clean zero g he said The hope is we ll be able to test the technique in a more realistic environment The workshop also offered valuable networking opportunities Students get a lot out of

  • Carthage students witness historic shuttle launch — Features — Carthage College
    with NASA senior research engineer Rudy Werlink for NASA s Systems Engineering Educational Discovery program or SEED The team worked with Mr Werlink to design and build a zero gravity fuel gauge In early April 2011 they traveled to Houston s Johnson Space Center and flew their experiment aboard a microgravity aircraft See video from their flight Weeks later Mr Werlink contacted Prof Crosby to arrange a second trip We were invited to Kennedy Space Center to participate in Rudy s ongoing experiment monitoring the integrity of the buried concrete support structures at the shuttle launch pad Prof Crosby said Rudy s interests are in modal analysis of spacecraft systems or using the natural vibrations of structures to learn about their integrity and internal geometry This is the technique we used in the SEED project to estimate the volume of propellant in a model spacecraft tank Mr Werlink wanted to continue working with the students and to build on the enthusiasm they already had shown for NASA research he said The students really were the engineers on that project and that s a great thing Hopefully this has been a life experience that they can look back to and say That is when I decided to do something in science It s not unusual for an experience like the SEED project to lead to other opportunities Prof Crosby said The opportunities that we provide students through programs such as the microgravity research group continue to open doors for students long after the projects are finished Carthage has been selected for NASA s SEED program four years in a row generating an elite group of students who can add their work with NASA to resumes and graduate school applications Over the years participation in the program has led directly or indirectly to premiere graduate school admissions internships with NASA student appointments to international leadership positions in the space sciences conference presentations at international congresses and the invitation to conduct research at Kennedy Space Center at such a historic point in time for America s space program Students see Atlantis on the launch pad Incredible While at Kennedy Space Center the Carthage group enjoyed rare access to NASA facilities They toured the Vehicle Assembly Building VAB attended a private post launch NASA party and saw the shuttle landing facility and Launch Pad 39B currently being dismantled They stood beneath the two story Mobile Launcher Platforms and beside the crawler transporters used to take shuttles from the VAB to the launch pad In the Orbiter Processing Facility where orbiters are taken for post flight service immediately after landing the students saw Discovery and Endeavor We climbed up the scaffolding surrounding Endeavor in the OPF and actually got to look down the length of the open payload bay and inside the orbital maneuvering system pod Prof Crosby said We got to touch Endeavor which had been in space 25 times added Kim That s one for the history books because it s very hard
