Please help us welcome Dr. Luke Roberson, Senior Principal Investigator for Flight Research at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, who will be giving a talk on “Water Chemistry for Space Exploration”. This seminar will describe how the Space Agency’s mission to return to the Moon will take place over the next few years, how technology is developed for space exploration, and how purifying water will be critical to the survival of the astronauts.
