Working in an arctic climate with logistical challenges often means necessary equipment can’t be ordered off the shelf.
On Feb. 9, 2014, a team of Geophysical Institute researchers launched a 10-foot carbon-fiber rocket on a seven-minute flight from Poker Flat Research Range north of Fairbanks. They fired the rocket to test its capabilities as a low-cost test vehicle for space physicists and other scientists who send missions through the aurora.

TThe GI has one evacuation chair that is located iside the Operations Office 615 directly across from the elevators. The purpose of the chair is to assist with evacuating people unable to walk down the stairs themselves in case of an emergency that renders the elevators unsafe. Example emergencies include fire and earthquake. Consider use of the chair not only for wheel-chair bound people, but for anyone temporarily on crutches or otherwise with limited mobility.
