Giordan Thompson (MechEngr’20) was one of 21 CU Boulder engineering students enrolled in the Maymester course, "Medicine in Space and Surface Environments," focused on aerospace engineering, human physiology and medicine. For one week of the three-week course, the students lived at the Mars Desert Research Station in southern Utah, where they simulated medical scenarios. The course was taught by faculty from CU Boulder’s aerospace department and from CU Anschutz.
