Newly qualified PhDs compete for short term research fellowships that last between one and three years. Most of the asteroids have orbits close to the ecliptic and move in the asteroid belt, between 2.3 and 3.3 AU from the Sun. OSIRIS-REx is the third mission in NASA’s New Frontiers Program. Here were discovered the expansion of the universe, quasars, and the theory of nucleosynthesis. We recommend warm clothing for all evening courses and a red light torch if you have one.
