Micro-g NExT, or Micro-g Neutral Buoyancy Experiment Design Teams, challenges undergraduate students to design and build prototypes of spacewalk tools and then travel to Houston to test their prototypes in the simulated microgravity environment of NASA’s 6.2 million gallon indoor pool – the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL).  The NBL is the NASA training facility where astronauts train for spacewalks. Through this activity, the NBL is open to students for hands-on research.  Encourage students to apply for Micro-g NExT.  The application deadline is January 28, 2015.
