Honors Department Visit for Bob Kirby’s Class September 25th, 2018

On September 25th, undergraduate Zachary Luppen hosted two student groups (10 students each) from Bob Kirby’s First Year Seminar class in the Honors college, in Van Allen Hall. The goal for these groups was to show them an interesting area of research that students at the university take part in. Luppen showed them where he works: the Europa Clipper and JUICE mission operations rooms on the 7th floor, as well as James Van Allen’s old office and the machine shop. Students were especially interested to learn that the University of Iowa has been involved in over 70 spacecraft missions.
