Both NITARP 2014 teams submitted research proposals. Several NITARP alumni helped review them.
Dr. Pereira has forwarded a copy of their paper that will be published in the May issue of The Physics Teacher on the identification and calculation of the three dimensional orbit of an asteroid. You can get it here.
Mr. Pereira writes that he and his student team have been named semi-finalists in Siemens Science and Technology Competition for their project: "Determination of Effective Diameter and Albedo of Asteroid 2010 FF7 from WISE data".
Mr. Pereira and his students wrote a paper, "Identification and Calculation of the Three Dimensional Orbit of an Asteroid", which has been accepted for publication in the journal, The Physics Teacher. It should be published in January or February 2013.
The regular NITARP 2012 teams submitted research proposals. Several NITARP alumni helped review their proposals.
The NITARP class of 2011 all submitted research proposals. Several NITARP alumni helped review proposals from the NITARP 2011 teams. (A BIG thank you to Dr. Geoff Bryden, who has volunteered to chair this committee.)
To be the first group to perform such calculations is an experience of a lifetime.
