SpaceVision 2014 [SEDS National Conference]
SEDS national conference is being hosted in Boulder in October 30 to November 2- Register Now!!. This event is expected to draw 300+ students and young professionals from across the nation for a weekend packed full of lectures, panels, and informational sessions.
This is an ongoing outreach project that aims to get educational materials into the hands of teachers so they can inspire their students in the arena of space at an early age. The students are encouraged to create a post-card drawing of what they picture the future to be like.
USLI (University Student Launch Initiative) [Rocket Project]
This is the rocket group that competes in various competitions with the aim of reaching various goals including getting as close to 1 mile. This is a wonderful introduction to composites technology and electronic system.

NASA Microgravity University [Research Project]
This project offers the opportunity to ride aboard the "Vomit Comet" as it follows its parabolic trajectory and everything in the aircraft experiences weightlessness! There are currently no microgravity in the works, but if you have an idea or are simply interested, please contact either Cameron Comeau or Abhijeet Kumar. For more information on this NASA sponsored project competition, please follow the link http://microgravityuniversity.
MIRAGE was the goal of seeing whether or not it was feasible to do injection casting in microgravity. Unfortunately it was found that the process of casting either hot or caustic materials in space is impractical due to containment issues.
VULCAN (Verifying Unaddressed Levels of Convection at Null-gravity) is a team comprised of a group of undergraduate engineering students at the University of Colorado that are participating in the NASA Microgravity program. The project focused on verifying correlations of convection in the absence of gravity.
Yuri's Night [World Space Party]
The 2014 Yuri's Night World Space party is being held this year at the Attic Bar and Bistro, 949 Walnut Street, just off of the Pearl Street Mall.
Yuri's Night is an international celebration held on April 12 every year to commemorate space exploration milestones. The event is named for the first human to launch into space, Yuri Gagarin, who flew the Vostok 1 spaceship on April 12, 1961 and the first space shuttle launch on the same date just 20 years later in 1981.
The goal of Yuri's Night is to increase public interest in space exploration and to inspire a new generation of explorers. CUSEDS has hosted the event in Boulder for the past six years. Every year there are more than 300 events on every continent and even in space!
