(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

MIT is a research university. We develop concepts and technologies that permit government and industry to make advances. One of MIT's proudest moments in space exploration was when the MIT Instrumentation Lab (part of the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics) was selected by NASA to provide the Apollo guidance system. MIT scientists and engineers are continually called on by the government and industry for consulting. Right now, NASA's chief engineer and deputy administrator are both MIT Professors on leave!
