CUSEDS: CU Students for the Exploration & Development of Space

CU Boulder and the Flatirons

Mars One calling from CUSEDS Crater!

The University of Colorado at Boulder chapter of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (CUSEDS) believes the future of humanity unequivocally lies in space. Our progression into this frontier will only be ensured if the next generation of explorers is impassioned, connected, educated, and otherwise given the tools that will allow them to become leaders in the space field.

 

CUSEDS is a CU student group / club devoted to the support and encouragement of students interested in the development and exploration of space. If you are a CU student interested in space, please consider

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.
