Robert Hillan is confident he made the right choice to come to UAH. "It was the first school I applied to," he says. "It's right next to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center and NASA MSFC, and it has the Propulsion Research Center."
At first glance, the web ad that popped up on Robert Hillan's browser looked like a scam. "It said something like, 'Get your design in space!', which made me think it was fraudulent," says the sophomore aerospace engineering major at UAH. "But I clicked on it, and it was legitimate." ​

"We have a broad spectrum of users here from all over the country, all walks of life," said Mike Newchurch, a UAH professor of atmospheric science and the chairman of the workshop's organizing committee.
Scientists who study air pollution and officials who try to measure, forecast and regulate it can't wait to get their hands (and their computer models) on data from instruments aboard NASA's TEMPO satellite.

"In classrooms, labs, and studios, students with varied backgrounds, experience, and knowledge will come together to work and study. They will learn to think critically about their course material and to solve problems collaboratively ­- hopefully resulting in strengthened relationships with each other and with UAH," says Dr. Curtis.
With increased recruitment efforts by UAH resulting in record enrollment over the past year, the focus is now on making sure that the university's growth is sustainable. Key to that is ensuring that all students ­- whether first-time freshmen, transfers, on-campus residents, or off-campus commuters - feel connected to UAH.

"The question is whether we can take something that is a pretty picture and make science out of it," Apke said.
Can you tell much about a thunderstorm by starting at the top? Jason Apke, a doctoral student in atmospheric science at UAH, thinks he might one day be able to use images of cloud tops taken every minute by a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather satellite to predict hail and strong rain, maybe even conditions that might lead to tornadoes.
