NASA’S FETTU WINS EXCELLENCE IN ASTRONOMY EDUCATION AND OUTREACH AWARD

NASA’s entry ‘From the Earth to the Universe’ (FETTU) was selected by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) for the International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA2009) Bhaumik award for Excellence in Astronomy Education and Public Outreach.

The FETTU project, competitively selected by NASA to support the goals of IYA2009, took astronomical images from NASA missions and ground based observatories to venues within the U.S. and internationally. They were viewed by millions of Americans at non-traditional venues such as parks and airports, and in so doing brought the science from NASA to a wide and diverse population. The exhibits were supported within the U.S. by educational material.  For images and additional information see: www.fromearthtotheuniverse.org
