The UH Cougarnauts

Last November, we told you about a team of UH Cullen College of Engineering students who were chosen to take a coveted ride in NASA’s reduced gravity aircraft, known as the “Vomit Comet.” The UH “Cougarnauts” team members were chosen as part of an elite group to participate in NASA’s Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program, where they performed an assigned experiment during 25-second bouts of weightlessness inside the aircraft. The UH students studied the effects of freezing water in zero-gravity conditions.
