SSP15 Preparation in full swing at OHIO

SSP15 CPM2

 

With the excellent Montreal SSP14 still fresh in our memories, the ISU staff is already in the throes of preparing for next summer's Space Studies Program in Athens, Ohio, USA.  SSP15 will convene from 8 June thru 7 August on the host campus of Ohio University.  Our SSP15 hosts are providing SSP participants, faculty and staff with residences and a dining facility dedicated exclusively for ISU use, and excellent academic facilities that are all within a short walk of one another.  The university's beautiful country setting is within easy travel distance to a number of important aerospace facilities, including NASA's Glenn Research Center.  SSP15 will include many professional visits, including a multi-day visit to NASA Glenn’s Plumbrook facility as part of NASA's partnership with ISU and Ohio University.

The Departmental and Team Project Chairs have been selected, and have met the week of November 17 at Ohio University to work out the final details of the SSP15 curriculum.
