UTA Grad Students in Physics

Two UTA Graduate students have been conducting research on the dynamics and evolution of super nova remnants, with grants from NASA. One of them is getting the opportunity of a lifetime to be a guest observer on the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy or SOFIA ( located on a jet aircraft in Palmdale, CA). They are researching super nova remnant “Cassiopeia A” using IR bands to pick up thermal radiation in the upper level atmosphere.
