NASA Donates Space Shuttle On-board Computer for Research at NSU

College of Engineering and Computing recently received one of the NASA Space Shuttle's on-board general purpose computers (AP-101S GPC). Faculty and students will study the design and construction of survival systems using the shuttle's computer. NSU was selected to receive the computer due in part to the university's science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs and the Buehler center that will focus on Space-based research. The donation is estimated at approximately $1.2 million. The computer will also be part of an exhibit in 2013 showcased initially at NSU's Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information Technology Center, and then afterward at the Emil Buehler Research Center for Engineering, Science and Mathematics. The exhibit will highlight how computers work side-by-side with man to explore our universe.
