The White House, through its Office of Technology and Science Policy Grand Challenge initiative, has asked industry and academia to identify and find solutions to significant national or global problems. CU-Boulder is leveraging its internationally recognized strength in aerospace science and technology to develop a Grand Challenge that will help us, as a society and as a State, be prepared to understand, live in, respond to, and be leaders of a new and rapidly changing aerospace-enabled economic and societal future.
Sydney Molloy, Nathan Allarid, Sarah Hughes, Dylon Marsh, and Andrew Rodriguez all participated in a poster session along side graduate and undergraduate students attending CU Boulder. Aside from the wonderful food and string quartet that played during lunch, students presented in front of several of the aforementioned professionals. They were also allowed to visit the other "space pods" created by the CU Boulder students which featured newly designed prototype ideas in 3D imaging, remote mining of meteors, space age thermal regulating clothing, and virtual reality enhancers.
