Fragile Oasis is NASA's grassroots initiative that connects the orbital perspective of astronauts who live and work in space with people who want to make a difference on Earth.
We’re excited to share this update from Fragile Oasis, one of open.NASA’s favorite communities. Fragile Oasis is NASA’s grassroots initiative that connects the orbital perspective of astronauts who live and work in space with people who want to make a difference on Earth.
Today, on the 44th anniversary of humanity’s first steps on the Moon and the 3rd anniversary of the birth of Fragile Oasis as a platform for collaboration we are thrilled to announce that three Fragile Oasis community projects have earned the Fragile Oasis Prize Medal for making a positive impact in Education, Humanitarian Service and Peace.
Of the 120 projects submitted from all over the world, Fragile Oasis crewmembers selected nine semi-finalists making a difference in Argentina, Canada, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, and in the United States. And then, over a 30-day period, crewmembers voted for one project in each category to receive a medal that flew with me for a half year on my last mission to the International Space Station.
