Brazilian Student Astronomers at Hardin-Simmons For Tour of Unique Asteroid Program

Four high school students are in town to tour Hardin-Simmons University's International Astronomical Search Collaboration.
Four high school astronomers from Brazil are visiting Hardin-Simmons University's unique asteroid program. The International Astronomical Search Collaboration, or ISAAC, was founded in 2006 by HSU professor, Dr. Patrick Miller. Since then, ISAAC, has grown significantly and involves around 7,000 students in 60 countries.

Two of the four students visiting received awards of achievement for their discovery of an uncharted asteroid.

The group has visited NASA in Houston and also traveled to Tarleton State to view constellations that they are unable to see in Brazil. They will return home to Brazil on Thursday the 12th.
