Utah State University Student Showcase
Utah State University’s Get Away Special (GAS) team will conduct research aboard NASA's microgravity research aircraft, the “vomit comet,” through the Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities program. Team members come from mechanical and aerospace engineering, computer science, physics, science education, and business backgrounds. The team will spend ten days this summer at NASA’s Johnson Space Center and perform experiments on the aircraft to better understand nucleate boiling, a potential method of efficient heat transfer in space.
