AGI partners with Caltech Space Challenge design competition

The Caltech Space Challenge is a student-designed and led competition that invites university-level space enthusiasts from around the world to design a mission to an asteroid in Near-Earth Orbit (NEO). The idea for the Challenge stems from President Obama’s goal of getting astronauts on an asteroid by 2025. Sponsored by the Keck Institute for Space Studies, competing teams will attend a workshop in mid-September where mentors from Caltech and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory will guide them in designing their space mission before they begin implementing their visions. Teams will be provided free use of AGI’s STK/Astrogator and STK/Analyzer software to aid the effort. Learn more.

    Oh great! I am really looking forward to the competition. STK Astrogator is my favorite tool and it’s a pleasure that we can use it there :)

  2. That’s great and and really I am waiting for the competition. I am not expert about it though I have general knowledge about the tools. Mr Obama is also doing well. His approach leads this competition and obviously it would make a giant leap to their space mission.
