Description

Mark Jernigan of NASA presentation will begin with an overview of the Rice Space Institute, and the Institute’s efforts to increase interaction between Rice and NASA JSC.  He will give a couple of examples of those efforts and talk about a couple of the outreach efforts to foster greater enthusiasm and awareness for the space economy.  Next, he will provide an overview of NASA’s ECLSS development efforts, framing NASA’s effort to provide an Earthlike ecology “in a box”.  Then he will discuss two major systems – water and waste management – and will close by briefly describing the “Engineers Without Borders effort”.
