Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Dr. Sean Casey was the guest for this Space Show program. Dr. Casey began by explaining to us the SOFA program which is the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy. This led to an in-depth discussion of SOFIA, other telescopes and infrared telescopes, the process for doing a science based telescope projects and more. We talked about the SOFIA 747SP, how it was being modified, the type of flight paths it would make and what it could observe. We also discussed educational outreach for SOFIA and teacher experience opportunities. This is a comprehensive discussion which can be applied to many space science projects so you will not want to miss it. We also discussed many of the changes being implemented at NASA Ames. You can send your questions and comments to Dr. Casey at email@example.com. The SOFIA website is www.sofia.usra.edu and it is packed with interesting and relevant information about SOFIA and much more.
