Welcome..  Vermont Space Grant Consortium / VT-NASA EPSCoR offers a variety of
opportunities for scholarships, research grants, awards and NASA Internship Programs that
 provide opportunities to work with NASA Principal Investigators.
The Vermont Space Grant Consortium is an organization involving Our Affiliates
Funded in part by a grant from NASA's National Space Grant  College and Fellowship Program,
 key goals of the Consortium are to build research infrastructure within the state, encourage
Vermont students to take more mathematics and science, and promote consideration of
careers in aerospace-related areas.

Announcements

     News/Reminders/Updates!!

Congratulations to Dr. Darren Hitt, Director of
Vermont Space Grant Consortium/NASA EPSCoR,
 for receiving a patent for research involving the performance optimization of micro-scale supersonic nozzles for miniaturized spacecraft. This patent is shared with collaborators in the School of Aeronautics & Astronautics at Purdue University is entitled "Method of Enhancing Microthruster Performance" (US Patent 8,613,188 B2).  Dr. Hitt’s research was supported by the NASA EPSCoR Research Group Program under NASA Cooperative Agreement #NNX08AZ07A.

Mr. David Hinckley, a Vermont Space Grant Fellow and graduate student in Mechanical Engineering at UVM, Hinckley Award_480
was a recipient of one of three Best Paper Awards at the UVM Computer Science Fair.

David's paper, co-authored with Computer Science graduate student Karol Zieba, was entitled "Trajectory Optimization using Evolutionary Algorithms in Lambert-Type Orbital Maneuvers."   David is currently pursuing an accelerated MS degree with a thesis topic involving autononmous rendezvous algorithms for swarms of small satellites.

"Space Weather" software available free online

 

Since 2000,  the "Space Weather" software disc (first on CD, then on DVD) has been distributed free to teachers, with 195,000 included in the "Sun-Earth Day Packets", as a treasure trove of material about space weather, the auroras, heliospheric missions, and the sun.  In total,  243,000 copies of the software have been distributed free by disc or download, and another 60,000 as part of "Space Update" software suite.  The "Space Weather" software, which allows one-click updating of the solar and auroral imaging and space weather forecasts, runs on a personal computer (Mac or Windows) and is available in "fullscreen" mode for a museum kiosk display.

 

Because of the closeout of NASA mission E/PO funding, this disc will no longer be duplicated for mass distribution in Sun-Earth Day packets but the pieces in it will still be available free online.  It will also still be available on disc as part of "Space Update"  software suite (http://www.spaceupdate.com/?software-spaceupdate.html )

 

For the free downloads go to :  

http://mms.rice.edu/mms/index_spaceweather_software.php

and select the software downloads and/or the links to the additional material that was previously on the disk.

 

All our remaining physical disks will be distributed at Exploration Station at AGU in December and at the 2014 NSTA national conference in Boston.

The Vermont Space Grant Consortium is an organization involving Our Affiliates .  Funded in part by a grant from NASA's National Space Grant  College and Fellowship Program, key goals of the Consortium are to build research infrastructure within the state, encourage Vermont students to take more mathematics and science, and promote consideration of careers in aerospace-related areas .

STRATEGIC PLAN AND GOALS:
●   Promote links between Vermont colleges and universities and NASA Field Centers and Mission Directorates.

●  Fund competitive proposals from faculty mentors for Graduate Research Fellowships to support graduate students
    who are involved in research projects in areas of interest to NASA. In addition to training the next generation of
    scientists and engineers, the research component of these fellowships should have the potential to increase
    Vermont's research infrastructure.

PUBLIC OUTREACH
●    Fund competitive proposals from affiliates and other Vermont organizations for science communication projects.


Funded by the
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Vermont Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) is one of a network of 52 university-based Space Grant Consortia representing every state, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. Through this national network, over 963 affiliate organizations are funded to support science and engineering students, to provide public service, and to offer K-12 science education programs.
