Dedicated to Janice Voss

VOSS is dedicated to Janice Voss, a Purdue alumnus, and the inspiration she created through her work in astronomy. Becoming an astronaut in July 1991, Voss worked in Spacelab robotics, NASA research, and the Kepler spacecraft as Science Director. Logging more than 48 days in space, Voss flew on the STS-57, STS-83, and STS-99, which mapped over 47 million square miles of Earth’s land surface. Voss passed away in February of 2012 after battling cancer.
