FREE EVENT: As part of the Houston Spaceport Frontier Lecture (http://spacefrontiers.rice.edu/) of the 2018-19 season, the Rice Space Institute (http://rsi.rice.edu/) presents Helen Reed, Ph.D., Regents Professor in the Department of Aeronautical Engineering at Texas A&M University, in a talk titled “Expanding Space: Creating the Next Generation of Space Explorers.”
Description: “The increased capability and low cost of micro-satellites
are fueling the way to easy access to space for a wide
range of new space explorers. Dr. Reed will describe
experiences in creating interdisciplinary teams of
students, with industry and government partners, to
engage in design-build-fly of operational small satellites
that advance new technologies and feed into national
initiatives. Combining industry practices with the learning
environment of a university helps drive the next generation
of space exploration. Involving more than 1,000 students
over the years, Dr. Reed’s teams have launched four small
satellites with the U.S. Air Force and NASA and partnered
on many other projects.”
