AEDC STEM, Matty and NASA make a connection

The Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA) is shown here at the Johnson Space Center, Texas. This modular three-story habitat was designed and created through a series of university competitions. The HERA serves as an analog for simulation of isolation, confinement and remote conditions of mission exploration scenarios. Westwood Middle School students in Manchester recently spoke with crew members on the HERA X mission by phone, which was made possible by the AEDC STEM Center coordinator, Jerry Matty. (NASA Photo)
