Dr. Hardersen travels to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
Dr. Hardersen traveled to the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, on October 25-26, 2012. Dr. Hardersen met with staff and engineers at Goddard's Integrated Design Center (IDC), where he learned about the instrument and mission design laboratories. Learning how to build and operate such facilities will inform efforts to develop a space mission design center for UND Space Studies. Dr. Hardersen also met with Dr. Holly Gilbert, adjunct faculty at UND Space Studies as well as a NASA Goddard solar physicist, to develop a new solar physics research project.
