Southern Miss Students Compete for Research Spot on the International Space Station Space and Aeronautics Chairman Palazzo Congratulates Alma Mater on Prestigious NASA Awar

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Steven Palazzo, Mississippi's Fourth Congressional District Representative and Chairman of the Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee, today congratulated the University of Southern Mississippi on the award of a NASA education cooperative agreement. USM was one of five universities in the country to receive the award.

"As a nation, we must continue to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education," Palazzo stated. "With its tradition of research and development, Southern Miss has earned its place as a leader in the STEM fields. Congratulations to the university and the students who will be representing Golden Eagles everywhere."

NASA is awarding approximately $863,000 collectively to the five schools participating. Students at the University of Southern Mississippi will study the feasibility of incubating organisms in a simulated Martian environment. They will be competing for one of two research spots to send an experiment to the International Space Station in the near future.

Palazzo is a Southern Miss graduate, receiving both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Accounting.
