Today the ‪#‎RPIAlumni‬ staff had a unique opportunity to see items from the International Space Station!

The Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute banners that Rick Mastracchio '87G and Gregory R. Wiseman '97 had on the ‪#‎ISS‬ were delivered to the Heffner Alumni House from NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The banners along with a letter of authenticity will be displayed to continually celebrate our alumni, who truly are out of this world.
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Gregory R. Wiseman '97 were recognized with the honor, “Most Compelling Science From the ISS for 2014” at the International Space Station Research and Development Conference.

Rensselaer Professors Joel Plawsky and Peter C. Wayner Jr. '56 lead the research on the physics of evaporation and condensation in microgravity.
