NC Space Grant Teams Go to Washington
In February, two NC Space Grant-supported groups – the Winston-Salem State University astrobotany lab of Faculty Research Grant recipient Rafael Loureiro and the Edgecombe Community College high-altitude ballooning team, CritECCly Stable – joined the NC Space Grant staff on a visit to Washington, D.C. Together, we celebrated the National Space Grant Program’s 30th anniversary and visited North Carolina’s Members of Congress. See photos and read memories from their adventures on our Facebook page.
