NESI – Ready for Blast Off

I learned today about the NESI board (photo above), a PIC24 based data acquisition board designed to fit in the NanoRacks, a platform for research on microgravity effects on board of the International Space Station. It has been created by Texas A&M University, in collaboration with NASA, the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), NanoRacks, Texas Space Technology Applications and Research (T STAR) and several other organizations.

Students from a growing number of both private and public secondary schools around the United States [see the list] will be able to get the boards and prepare their experiments using a common software framework, ready for blast off!
