Aleksandar Ostrogorsky

I took my seat on the airplane and as usual, began to play a movie– Interstellar. I was about to embark on a journey, one that I have taken many times before– to space! This time I would accompany Matthew McConaughey as a post apocalyptic NASA sends him on a journey through space and time to save humanity while he attempts to reconcile his relationship with the daughter he left behind on earth. Although my body has never left the safe haven of earth’s atmosphere, my mind has often journeyed far beyond our earthly realm.


The Center for the Advancement of Science In Space (CASIS), in conjunction with NASA, has recently awarded a grant to Aleksandar Ostrogorsky, Professor of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at Armour College of Engineering, to prepare and conduct eight crystal growth experiments aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Dr. Ostrogorsky’s investigation is one of three materials science projects selected for funding by the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS). CASIS was selected by NASA in July 2011 to maximize use of the ISS U.S.
