NC Space Symposium to Host Astronaut Zena Cardman
Registration is open for the 2021 NC Space Symposium on April 16 that will feature a keynote address from NASA astronaut Zena Cardman. Hosted by NC Space Grant, the event will run from 1 to 5 p.m. in a virtual format. Registration is free, but seats are limited.
“Our symposium celebrates current students, alumni and partners who offer insight for career pathways,” notes Susan White, NC Space Grant’s executive director.
Cardman is among the alumni for the program. While an undergraduate and graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, she was a Space Grant scholar, with funding support for research and internships. Cardman was selected by NASA to join the 2017 Astronaut Candidate Class.
