Attention MECH undergraduate and graduate students! Ever want to design a human mission to a Martian moon? Now’s your chance.
The Engineering and Applied Science Division at the California Institute of Technology invites current full-time graduate and undergraduate students from all over the world to participate in the second Caltech Space Challenge.
In 2011, 32 students were selected from the 270+ applicants (both domestic and international), and divided into two teams. Each team of 16 then had to design a manned mission to a near-earth object.
What: One-week mission design competition where students will be challenged to develop a mission to send astronauts to a Martian moon. Students will be supported with guest lectures and workshops from top scientists and engineers from NASA-JPL, Caltech, and other premier institutions.
Where: California Institute of Technology
When: March. 25 – 29, 2013
How: Apply by Dec. 15, 2012
