Students at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla are working to improve cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in a microgravity environment. The tests could lead to greater safety for future space travelers.
Tyler Meadows, of Monett, and a junior in aerospace engineering, is one of 14 Missouri S&T students who are members of the university's Miners in Space student organization.
In December 2011, S&T's Miners in Space team was one of 14 selected by NASA to participate in the agency's Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program (RGEFP).
S&T's team will conduct its experiments June 8-16 at Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.
