SpaceShipOne to Cassini-Huygens, there has been a lot of recent buzz in the media about all things cosmic. Students at North Dakota’s public and tribal colleges and universities, who wonder just how they could be a part of the future of space science, recently were invited to participate in the development of a Martian Space Suit with each of their home schools. Since that invitation, Turtle Mountain Community College has joined UND as a participant in the program, which is based at UND. The invitation to other schools remains open. “We need students with the enthusiasm and interest for human space flight,” said Pablo DeLeon from UND’s Department of Space Studies.
