Chapin Professor of Geology J. Mark Erickson recently participated in an
Apollo Geology Training Workshop at NASA in Houston, led by Senior Scientist
Dean Eppler '74.
Participants included NASA astronauts and their former teachers, who have
the responsibility for developing ideas and methods for the geology
curriculum to be used by the next group of lunar astronauts,
those of the Constellation Project. In addition to Erickson and
Barbara Tewksbury '73, a member of the design team, participated in the
workshop, held at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston in April.
Class of 2008 Valedictorian David Baker, of Camden, New York, is among the
Institute's 2008 summer interns.
