A scientific research and development company operated by two Thomson High School alumni will build a sensor that detects gases that will be deployed to the International Space Station in the fall.
Jeff and Melissa Pilgrim, owners of Vista Photonics, Inc. in Santa Fe, N.M. landed a contract with NASA in May to design and construct a multi-gas monitor for the spacecraft cabin environment. The portable senor will monitor oxygen, carbon dioxide, water vapor and ammonia on the space station.
The Optical Life Gas Analyzer is scheduled for delivery to the ISS by the Russian Soyuz spacecraft in November.
