5-day rule FAQs »





UCF has quite a bit of expertise when it comes to studying lunar and asteroid surfaces. So, it is no surprise to find NASA’s Center for Lunar and Asteroid Surface Science (CLASS) smack in the heart of campus. The Center is part of NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI), which facilitates NASA’s exploration of deep space by focusing its goals at the intersection of surface science and surface exploration of rocky and atmosphere free bodies such as the moon and asteroids. CLASS’ mission is to encourage leading planetary scientists, geologists, geochemists, dynamicists, engineers, physicists and other researchers from across the world to focus on understanding the formation and evolution of the surfaces of these bodies - so that future exploration missions, whether human or robotic, will be properly equipped to handle any challenges they face. UCF Physics Professor Dan Britt leads the center. Together the researchers work on a variety of projects that are literally out of this world. For more informatioin, click here.
