The University of Iowa has won the single largest externally funded research project in its history, a $115 million contract awarded to Craig Kletzing, professor in the UI Department of Physics and Astronomy. Kletzing’s team will study the connection between the magnetic fields of the Earth and sun.
Kletzing: Researcher, teacher, leader:
For more than 20 years, physicist Craig Kletzing has flourished as a researcher at the University of Iowa, where his work using rockets and satellites to learn about Earth’s auroras has yielded an astounding contract award from NASA. Iowa also offered Kletzing the opportunity to teach a wide range of physics courses—a source of personal reward he wasn’t guaranteed elsewhere.
