3 payloads built by CU-Boulder set for launch on space shuttle Atlantis
Date:5/12/2010

is retired. Stodieck said hardware and experiments built by BioServe are manifested on both missions as well as on future resupply vehicles traveling to the International Space Station from other countries. BioServe also has plans to fly hardware and experiments in micro-gravity on existing commercial rockets and on space vehicles now under development, Stodieck said.

"It's been quite an era for the space shuttle program," said Stodieck. "But I fully expect we will continue to do research on the International Space Station it will just require an adjustment in space vehicles."

Both undergraduate and graduate students play a role in designing, building and testing spaceflight payloads, said Stodieck. Master's student Christine Fanchiang, who has helped to test the payloads, will be at Cape Kennedy, Fla., for the launch.

"I had heard there were astronauts on the CU faculty, and then I found out that I could actually work with real spaceflight hardware at BioServe," Fanchiang said. "I plan on getting my doctorate here in aerospace engineering, and who knows -- maybe someday I can help to design and build lunar outposts."

BioServe also has flown several K-12 educational experiments on ISS, including seed-germination studies, crystal garden growth experiments and the life cycles of butterflies -- all of which have provided learning opportunities for middle school and high school students around the world, said Stefanie Countryman. Countryman is BioServe's business manager and coordinator of education outreach.
