The Puerto Rico Space Grant Consortium

The NASA Puerto Rico Space Grant Consortium (PRSGC) enhances local research and education capabilities in NASA-related fields and contributes to the Nation's Science and Technology enterprise by capitalizing on the institutional and human capital available on the Island. PRSGC resides in the Resource Center for Science and Engineering, with the Central Administration of the University of Puerto Rico as the Lead Institution and 17 public and private affiliate institutions.

The Consortium implements a research and education agenda relevant to Puerto Rico and NASA and disseminates knowledge about the NASA mission and the associated opportunities available for students, teachers, professors and researchers. By improving the quality and relevance of research and education on the Island, PRSGC helps expand and nurture a diversified and sophisticated workforce capable of contributing to meeting the needs of the Nation.

University of Puerto Rico's Space-Bound Experiment Uses Evactron Plasma Decontamination

The Puerto Rico Space Grant Consortium has a participating team made up of interdisciplinary students from several institutions. These include the University of Puerto Rico at Rio Piedras and Mayaguez Campus; the Puerto Rico Department of Education through their Tool and Die School and Marcelino Canino Canino Middle School. A new partnership was formed this year with the Bifrost Corporation with the purpose of going further into research and development of high definition imaging systems for these educational missions. Oscar Resto is the PI of the UPR RockSat-X program. He is a physicist with more than 35 years experience on experimental physics from vacuum deposition systems and surface science spectroscopy to the innovative Ultra High Transmission Electron Microscopy capable of observing single atoms.
