Computer Science student Rob Peterson was highlighted in the Boise State Update for his involvement in the multidisciplinary Student Opportunities for Airborn Research (SORE) program, one of eight teams chosen by NASA to participate nationally. Over 16 weeks, the team designed and built a high-altitude atmospheric data recorder to be used in NASA’s high-altitude research aircraft, the WB-57.
“It’s been interesting working with multiple groups without a clearly defined schedule or milestones,” said Rob Peterson, a junior computer science major. “We have very specific technical specifications but the negotiation process, understanding the required specs and learning how to meet them has been fun and challenging.”
The team is getting to test their build this week at Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Read more from the Boise State Update here.
