Today we heard from both teachers and students. Teachers shared lessons they have planned using the All Stars website and all the astronomers stories. Students shared the research projects they have been working on. Both groups did a great job. I can’t wait to try some of the research projects myself and some of the lessons with my students. I have really enjoyed working with this group this summer.

A new NASA mission, the Neutron Star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER), is headed for the International Space Station to observe one of the strangest observable objects in the universe. In this photo, NICER’s X-ray concentrator optics are inspected for dust and foreign object debris that could impair functionality once in space.
