(Morehead, Kentucky) – An eager group of students from Whitley County, Elliott County, Paducah Tilghman, and Jenkins Independent visited the Space Science Center at Morehead State University looking for a future in space.  The center at MSU is a world leader in small satellite development and tracking.

According to Space Science Director, Ben Malphrus students not only get a solid academic foundation, but they also work on projects like the current Lunar IceCube which is scheduled to go to the moon next year in search of lunar ice.  This is an important step in man living on the moon and moving further on to mars.

Students and parents alike had no idea that the space is one of the leading industries in the state of Kentucky, larger than bourbon, autos or horse racing.  Bigger yet for the potential students is that Morehead University Space Science program plays a significant role in producing experienced graduates who are in high demand across the country.

Students from schools in the Dataseam program interested in studying Space Science should apply today.
