On October 26 at the Vanderbilt Planetarium, students from Stimson’s Student Spaceflight Experiment Program (SSEP) presented the results from the experiment that flew to the International Space Station at a meeting of the Astronomical Society of Long Island.  The students; Jacob Veeder, Stephan Tsolis, Dylan Cellamare, Richard Kurjanski, Leo Mustitano, and Hussain Babar did an outstanding job of explaining their research and answering questions.  After the presentation, students and their families had the opportunity to view the night sky from the Vanderbilt's large telescope.

It was a wonderful opportunity for the students to share their experiences with an extraordinarily knowledgeable audience!  A big thank you to the Astronomical Society for their hospitality and ongoing interest in our students' work.
