Most of our technology development PIs hire students and postdocs, on average three or four per project, totaling many dozens to date. This helps train the future astrophysics workforce. As can be seen in the quotes below, the Program is making a deep impact on these future technologists, and through them promotes astrophysics missions over many decades to come.
