High Point University

Star Finders

Pulsars are rotating neutron stars that appear to be blinking from where we see them on Earth, and astronomers have not found very many of them. Watch as High Point University students travel to an observatory in Chile to discover one of of these rare stars.

Space Scoop

See the new device NASA is testing to chip pieces off an asteroid. The new tool for astronauts was not developed in NASA labs, but rather at High Point University right here in North Carolina. Scientists are interested in asteroids because they haven't changed much since the dawn of the solar system. Asteroid fragments that the "chip and ship" could capture would help give scientists an early picture of the solar system.
