The OQ Missions
Each year Orion’s Quest adds new “live” or near real time missions to our offerings. While these current missions usually take place during a single semester all of the virtual missions (previously conducted in space) are available online throughout the school year. All material and equipment, either unique to the mission or not available in the classroom, is supplied by Orion’s Quest.
Orion’s Quest is currently recruiting teachers for two live missions, Biofilms in Space and in You supporting the work of Dr. Luis Zea of BioServe Space Technologies in Boulder, Colorado and Worms in Space 2.0 supporting the work of Siva Vanapalli at the University of Texas, both be conducted on the International Space Station.
