Twelve two-person teams have been selected for SOFIA's Airborne Astronomy Ambassadors program, representing educators from 10 states. Each will be paired with a professional astronomer to observe first-hand how airborne infrared astronomy is conducted. Jean has been paired with Kathy Gustavson of Nicolet High School and both hope to fly in the next few weeks.
Good luck ladies and safe travels!
