IHO invites students to join Lucy in Space!
Middle and high school students and teachers—IHO is launching a contest in partnership with the NASA Lucy Mission! The contest will creatively explore our origins here on Earth and in our own solar system. Winners get an invitation (virtual or in person) to view the launch at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida (sorry, travel expenses not covered) and have presentations by our own Donald Johanson and lead scientists at the Southwest Research Institute for the mission to your class or school—plus be featured on NASA and ASU websites! Read more about the contest and rules at the contest website https://askananthropologist.asu.edu/lucy-in-space
ASU Catalyst interviews Don Johanson about the NASA Lucy Mission, which includes ASU components. The mission will reach asteroids close to Jupiter, which may contain clues to the origin of our solar system.
