Everything from studying the sun’s impact on earth to advanced electronic instruments to probe the vacuum of space was on display during the Internal Research and Development (IRAD) poster session Dec. 3.

The annual event, sponsored the Office of the Chief Technologist, attracted about 350 of Goddard’s best and brightest who came to learn about the promising technologies and concept studies the Center’s IRAD program funded this past fiscal year.

“In addition to showcasing our R&D achievements, we hold this event each year to give employees a chance to connect, share ideas, and possibly forge new partnerships that could lead to a revolutionary new technology,” said Chief Technologist Peter Hughes.
