Discovery Days: NASA Exploration Design Challenge

Friday Nov 29, 2013 - Saturday Nov 30, 2013 Bluedorn Science Imaginarium
322 Washington St.
Waterloo

Take part in NASA's Exploration Design Challenge during Discovery Days at the Bluedorn Science Imaginarium.  The goal of the Exploration Design Challenge is for students to research and design ways to protect astronauts from space radiation. NASA and Lockheed Martin are developing the Orion spacecraft that will carry astronauts beyond low Earth orbit and on to an asteroid or Mars. Protecting astronauts from radiation on these distant travels is an important and very real problem that needs solving.

All students that participate in this challenge can join other participants from around the world to celebrate the Exploration Flight Test-1 of Orion by having their names flown on board as honorary crew members.
