Geology Students Win NASA Grant for Microgravity Research

The Bryn Mawr Microgravity Research Team – a group of seven Geology Majors – has been selected by NASA to fly on the “Vomit Comet“, an astronaut training aircraft that simulates zero gravity. The team wrote the NASA grant themselves, mentored by Geology Assistant Professor Selby Cull, and will be simulating the effect of Mars gravity on Martian soil porosity.  Read their blog here!
