TEPEE Partners Receive Grant from ISA

The non-US partners (V. Iafolla, PI) at Interplanetary Space Physics of the National Research Council (IFSI/CNR) (Rome, Italy) were awarded a research contract from the Italian Space agency to cover their participation in the project "Testing the Equivalence Principle in an Einstein Elevator" (TEPEE). The role of the non-US partners is to design and build a laboratory prototype of the differential accelerometer and to conduct basic measurements in the laboratory to characterize the instrument prototype and learn lessons to be used in the design of the flight instrument.
