Marshall Space Experiment Presentation at Duluth Children's Museum
n/a

Are you available tomorrow morning to go to space with some frogs? If you are, head to the Duluth Children's Museum from 9-11 a.m., Thursday, March 12, to learn more about the Marshall students who have been selected to have their science experiment performed on the International Space Station.


Later this summer, the experiment proposed by Marshall seniors Alli Hall, Pentti Hanlon, and Anna Nordin will be conducted by astronauts on the International Space Station. The trio has proposed an experiment focusing on how frog embryos develop in microgravity.


The Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP), is an annual competition-based program that allows students to create proposals for experiments they'd like to see carried out in microgravity. The winning experiment is sent to the International Space Station, where it will be conducted by astronauts.


The entire community, especially younger learners, is invited to tomorrow's presentation. There will also be information on other projects which were proposed for the SSEP opportunity.
