Georgia Tech cheerleaders participate in citizen science (Project MERCCURI!)

Howdy, folks! The Georgia Tech Gold Rush dance team collected microbes for Project MERCCURI in October and sent along some great pictures. Our thanks to Brandy and the whole team for participating! Project MERCCURI microbe samples collected from stadiums and other cool surfaces are scheduled to go up on the next SpaceX launch to the International Space Station, currently scheduled for February 22, where they will be analyzed by the astronauts up there. See Space Microbes to learn more about this research project.
