ARKANSAS, USA — The Arkansas Space Grant Consortium (ASGC) is among more than 20 universities and organizations across the U.S. to receive a $100,000 grant from NASA to support scientific and technical research projects.

The awarded project will be conducted at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and led by Han Hu, an assistant professor of engineering and mechanical engineering. Hu will serve as the head science investigator, while Constance Meadors, director of the ASGC, will serve as the principal investigator and facilitator of the grant.
