Faculty and staff honors:

- Cary Mitchell, a professor of horticulture and landscape architecture at Purdue University, received the 2012 Jeffries Aerospace Medicine and Life Science Research Award of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics for his contributions to space life sciences through ground-based research and project leadership. He received the award at a July 18 banquet as part of the 42nd International Conference on Environmental Systems in San Diego. Mitchell's research has led to a new understanding of biogenerative life support systems, plant production, and the key enabling technology of light-emitting diodes, or LEDs. His work has been used to lower the mass and power required to govern plant production and closed environment agriculture systems for both space and terrestrial applications.
