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.
