NASA places a high priority on finding Near- Earth Objects (NEOs) and protecting our home planet from them. In fact, the agency is working with our partners in the U.S. and around the world to detect, track and characterize NEOs, especially those that might pose a threat to human populations. NASA has been studying NEOs since the 1970s.  They are asteroids and comets that have been nudged by the gravitational attraction of nearby planets into orbits that allow them to enter the Earth...

It is a race against time for ESA’s Gravi-2 experiment following launch last Friday on the Dragon space ferry. Stowed in Dragon’s cargo are lentil seeds that will be nurtured into life on the International Space Station. Gravi-2 continues the research of its predecessor into how sensitive plants are to gravity. To find out, 768 lentil seeds will be subjected to different levels of simulated gravity. Spinning them in centrifuges at different speeds on the Space Station will...

    The Department of Space Studies in the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences at the University of North Dakota invites applications for the position of assistant/associate professor in the field of space engineering.


    Candidates must have an earned doctorate or must have completed all requirements for a doctoral degree before the spring 2013 semester. An established record of research, ability to guide students on research, teaching and service will be considered favorably in evaluation. A broad insight into the interdisciplinary nature of space activities and significant ongoing contact or connections with the space community is highly desirable. A strong interest in, and or record of developing collaborative research projects with external funding, in those fields as they relate to use, developmental and exploration of space, particularly human space exploration, is expected. The responsibilities include guiding and mentoring graduate student research, teaching graduate and undergraduate level courses, and service. The percentage work load within each of these categories is negotiable. Exceptional candidates with experience may be considered for an appointment at associate professor level with credit towards tenure, if appropriate.


    The Department of Space Studies is a strongly interdisciplinary program featuring an M.S. degree in Space Studies and an undergraduate minor. A Ph.D. program in Aerospace Sciences, in collaboration with the Department of Aviation, has recently been approved and will start in fall of 2012. In addition to its on-campus education program, the Department has a large online education program, with the student body (both campus and online) comprised mostly of highly motivated early career professionals seeking a graduate degree for professional advancement or personal interest. Approximately a third of the student body is composed of active duty military personnel and another third are currently employed by NASA or the aerospace industry.
