Students participate in NASA research The Exponent
Indianapolis high school students visited Purdue Thursday in order to establish their school in a partnership that already exists between NASA and Purdue. In 2002 Purdue was chosen to support a five-year, $10 million research program for NASA to establish a new NASA Specialized Center of Research and Training, where the researchers’ main focus is addressing the main requirements of supporting human life in space. This focus on ‘advanced life support’ will significantly expand Purdue’s science program by creating a partnership with the university and NASA.
