Praise for ASU planetary scientists
The Arizona Republic editorialized recently that ASU's work on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter "represents a valuable contribution to Arizona's standing in the world and enhances our state's ability to attract talent, investment and economic development in competitive high-tech fields."
The editorial went on to note achievement at all 3 state universities, concluding, "These sorts of far-reaching benefits from Arizona's quality research-based universities are so engrained in Arizona's identity that it is easy to take them for granted. But like flying to the moon, the accomplishments of the should inspire excitement that transcends temporary budget problems."
