Happenings at The School of Graduate Studies at the University of North Dakota

A Busy Week for our Department of Space Studies

leave a comment »

Last weekend, the world lost a pioneer in Neil Armstrong whose name is synonymous with space exploration. Several of our Space Studies faculty reflected on that historic flight and what Armstrong and his team achieved for humankind, as well as how the moon landing impacted them personally.

Congratulations are also in order. The Department also announced that the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium recently received an award of $860, 000 for FY12 & 13 from NASA’s Department of Education. The award is for promoting STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education at college level in North Dakota through “hands on” student projects. ND Space Grant is a statewide program.

And to round out the week, the Space Studies and Astronomy Club will host a public start gazing party tonight. Click here for details for tonight’s party and those scheduled for September and October.
