Renown experts on space junk identification, tracking, and retrieval
Fifty years ago Apollo 11 launched and NASA put a man on the moon. Since the beginning of the space program, humans have been leaving space debris or space "junk" behind with each mission. UB's Center for Multisource Information Fusion (CMIF) is helping to clean it up.
This week marks the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. UB, home to SUNY's only aerospace engineering program, is proud to partner with world-class organizations in Buffalo who helped make it possible: Moog, Cobham Mission Systems, and Calspan.
