Steven Collicott, a professor of aeronautics and astronautics at Purdue University, can discuss the merits of private-sector space enterprise, research in zero-gravity and the use of the International Space Station. He has extensive zero-gravity research experience, with dozens of experiments on NASA aircraft and several suborbital rocket experiments, and he designed experiments operated on the International Space Station.

He also teaches a Zero-Gravity Flight Experiment course to immerse undergraduate engineering students in the design-build-test cycle for zero-gravity experimentation in suborbital rocket flights, parabolic aircraft flights, and space station.

He has testified before Congress and serves on the Scientific Advisory Board for the Center for Advancement of Science in Space, the organization created by Congress and NASA to run the U.S. portion of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory.
