1) MAVEN is a CU led NASA mission to Mars whose aim is to find out what happened to the Red Planet's atmosphere. This November NASA will be launching MAVEN from Kennedy Space Center. To celebrate this launch the University Colorado at Boulder will be celebrating the launch as it happens in the University Memorial Center, the launch is currently set for early November.
2) COSMOS with Carl Sagen
The planet Mars is in many ways the sister planet of Earth, it is a rocky planet whose surface unlike Venus has temperatures close enough that we could survive there, but what if we could live there. Join us as Carl Sagan explains the feasibility of terraforming Mars in an effort to make Mars more like Earth.
When: November 20th at noon.
Join us as we go to the lookout point above Boulder along Flagstaff road where all who come will get the chance to see two great sights; the city below, and Luna above. If you decide to join us, make sure you are dressed accordingly for Colorado fall evenings.
Where: Amphitheatre along Flagstaff Road, we will also be offering rides from the engineering center to the amphitheatre.
4) Space Trivia
Do you like space, do you like going out to the bars, well then we have the event for you. In cooperation with Connor O'Niels down near Pearl Street, CUSEDS will be hosting a space themed trivia night.
Where: Connor O'Niels
When: To Be Determined
Projects & Competitions: Fall 2013
1) University Microgravity [Project]
This project is an annual endeavor to come up with an experiment which can only be conducted in microgravity. What that means for all you space and adventure enthusiasts is if the idea you come up with and help write a proposal for is accepted, you will get the chance to fly on the infamous "Vomit Comet." We are currently looking for ideas on projects to do, any project idea is welcome (please see our projects page under microgravity for guidelines). If you have any addtional questions or comments, please contact either Cameron Comeau or Abhijeet Kumar.
