This website was designed to follow a group of aspiring engineering students at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), that have been selected to design a device that enables an astronaut to collect a sub-surface sample in micro-gravity. Towards the end of May 2017, the team will be traveling to Houston, Texas to test out their device in NASA's Johnson Space Center 6.2 million gallon neutral buoyancy pool.
