Where: Fiske Planetarium

When: March 13 at 5 pm


Lunch with an Astronaut

Astronaut Don Petit was kind enough to join members of the executive board and those who could attend for a small lunchen and discuss some of the more 'behind the scenes' activities that an astronaut goes through being an astronaut. Don Petit was made famous for making short Youtube videos about the effects weightness and how it affects the formation of bubbles and how you can actually get a ball bearing to orbit a rod by rubbing the latter against your head.

Where: Lockheed Martin Room, DLC

When: March 6 at 11:30 am


ULA - NASA launch of TDRS-L

A series of members of CUSEDS got the wonderful opportunity to visit United Launch Alliance's Centennial Colorado control facility. Due to security purposes we were not allowed to take pictures, but it was well worth it.

Fall 2013

Space Vision 2013

This year ten CU SEDS members traveled to the sunny state of Arizona to attend the conference which was conducted at the Arizona State University Tempe Campus. Opening keynote this year was by none other than Bill Nye as he addressed the over two hundred students from around the country who traveled the great distances to get there. Other highlights of the conference included a two a kind 3D planetarium in which the 'pilot' took everyone in attendence out to see the constellations and show how in reality they make the earth appear like a sea sponge, the deadly prongs piercing the galatic disk. Then they took us out farther, to the very edge of space and showed how the background radiation of the big bang defines basically a giant sphere sixteen billion light years across.

Where: Tempe, Arizona

When: November 7-10

To top if off a picture was taken with every member of CUSEDS that volunteered or attended the conference in from of XCOR Aerospace's Lynx prototype mockup.


Spring 2013

Engineering Days (E-Days)

E-Days is the yearly celebration put on by the University of Colorado Engineering Council at the end of each school year to celebrate all of the hard work that engineering students have done that year. Many year long projects are showcased, and many other less rigorous activities such as an egg drop competition are undertaken. For CUSEDS' part, we undertook to build an obstacle course that would have incorporated a bouncy castle, unfortunately due to a last minute rejection by CU athletics we were forced to alter our plans. Nonetheless we created an obstacle course that was not short in amusement.

Golden Spike

Golden Spike Company has an ambitious plan to return the nations to the world by creating the most pragmatic plan possible. They plan to invent nothing that hasn't already been invented and to never let cost leave their minds as they implement their plan. The result, a way to get to the moon for 1/20th the cost of what a modern day Apollo program would cost.

Speaker: Alan Stern - President and CEO of Golden Spike

When: April 18, 2013

Where: ECCR 200
