Interested in designing a world-class biosatellite, researching aerospace
physiology, or exploring microfinancing concepts for space missions?

http://www.marsgravity.org ; http://YourNameIntoSpace.org

Mars Gravity / YourNameIntoSpace is once again excited to open our doors to
visiting engineers, scientists, marketing and public relations experts, and
educators for our summer workshop. Students and professionals alike are
invited to apply for this annual program hosted in both Boston and Atlanta.
Dates for participants are flexible, but typically run from 6 to 12 weeks
between June and September.

See http://marsgravity.org/main/getinvolved.html for an application.
All materials must be submitted by March 1st.

[NOTE: A limited number of biomechanics spots are available for studies of
partial weight bearing adaptation, focusing particularly on musculoskeletal
changes under chronic 1/6 and 1/3-g loads. Experience with mouse models of
unloading and/or analysis of rodent skeletal samples a strong plus. Finite
element modeling skills also welcomed.]
