Citrus College Students Return from NASA Summer Program

Zero Gravity 

 

ZERO GRAVITY – Nine Citrus College students recently defied gravity, courtesy of an elite college program sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).  These students, known as the Citrus GraviTeam, were selected to participate in NASA’s Reduced Gravity Flight Program at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.  While flying in a microgravity environment aboard the NASA C-9 “Weightless Wonder” aircraft, the Citrus GraviTeam performed an experiment they proposed, designed, and created.  Front row (from left to right):  Joshua Huffaker of Glendora, Randall Acosta of West Covina, Jacqueline Deeb of Glendora, NASA engineer Nujoud Merancy, NASA engineer Fernando Zumbado, and Wesley Gunter of Duarte.  Back row (from left to right):  Gabriel Grier of Pomona, Phoebe Sulzen of San Gabriel, and Craig Stremel of La Verne.
