Student Undergrad Field Trip to DC
During spring break from March 10-18, 2012, Dr. Paul Hardersen, three Space Studies M.S. students, and 13 UND undergraduates enrolled in Space Studies 300 spent a week in the Washington, DC, area to discover and learn about different aspect of the U.S. space program. The group made visits to NASA Headquarters, the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, the offices of U.S. Senators Kent Conrad and John Hoeven, and the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum. Students were exposed to a healthy dose of NASA science mission, aeronautics, education programs, space policy, and spacecraft manufacturing facilities.
