Ukrainian - Fast Plants Collaboration featured in UW-Madison Wednesday Night at the Lab Presentation

Posted by on .

Dan Lauffer will present for WN@TLScience, politics, and school children: Reflections on a special UW-Ukrainian collaboration. Paul Williams will join in for a Q&A to conclude the presentation.

Both global and local in scope, this talk recalls the serendipitous events leading up to a Ukrainian and US collaboration in space research and education. Dan Lauffer recalls and presents the story of roles played in 1997 by UW-Madison, NASA, and Ukrainian scientists in a shared, large-scale project, involving Wisconsin Fast Plants and experiments in space. Situated during the end of the Cold War, this collaboration entwined facets of politics, plant sciences, and high school science learning across Ukraine and the United States
