Jon Rask, NASA’s Space Life Sciences Training Program Director at Ames Research Center, will provide a free public presentation on “The Intersection of Space and Home” covering how his experience with human health research, earth and space exploration, and habitat development at UND interacts with his home base in ND, and how growing up in North Dakota has influenced life and career choices.
