Professor Bob Binns receives $25,000 from the Peggy and Steve Fossett Foundation to fund a graduate student fellowship in astrophysics called the "Peggy and Steve Fossett Antarctic Astrophysics Fellowship"...

This fellowship has been awarded to Ryan Murphy for his work on the SuperTIGER experiment, which was flown on a high-altitude balloon over Antarctica in December 2012. Ryan Murphy and Dr. John E.
