"The Eckerd undergraduates involved will have research opportunities at a world-class, state-of-the-art laboratory shared by few students in the nation, and almost none at small colleges," Hudson said in a news release.
The grants are:
- A 3-year grant for $404,000 from NASA's Planetary Geology and Geophysics Program will support research into the complex sulfur chemistry of Europa, one of the four large moons around the giant planet Jupiter;
- A 2-year grant for $205,000 from NASA's Cassini Data Analysis Program for studies of the atmospheric chemistry of Titan, the largest moon of Saturn; and,
- A 3-year grant, of which Hudson is the co-author and co-investigator, for $408,000 from NASA's Exobiology Program for the study of amino-acid formation in meteorites.
