A flyer with a photo of NASA students diving in a pool.As NASA prepares for the return to Earth’s Moon, it is calling all undergraduate students who would like to gain a hands-on, authentic engineering design experience while also directly contributing to upcoming missions! Micro-gravity Neutral Buoyancy Experiment Design Teams (Micro-g NExT) is an opportunity for you to make your contribution to NASA’s mission. Micro-g NExT challenges undergraduate students to design and build prototype mission hardware. The student-designed prototypes are tested in the underwater lunar analog environment of NASA’s 6.2-million-gallon indoor pool – the Neutral Buoyancy Labor­atory (NBL) in Houston, where astronauts train for spacewalks. You will also benefit from the exper­tise of real NASA engineers throughout the pro­cess. Take the Micro-g NExT challenge and join NASA as we embark on a mission to the Moon and beyond.

Letters of intent are due on October 13, 2022 and the proposal deadline is October 26, 2022.
