Caltech Space Challenge
Friday March 31, 2017 2:00 PM
Location: Guggenheim 133 (Lees-Kubota Lecture Hall)
Humans have lived in space, walked on the Moon, and now have Mars in sight. Sending humans beyond LEO has many challenges, including that the mass of fuel required to leave Earth significantly limits the mass available for the remainder of the mission.
But what if we could refuel in space?
Caltech Space Challenge participants will present their design for Lunarport, a launch and supply station for deep space missions. Lunar in-situ resource utilization will allow more massive payloads to be launched from Earth, bringing deep-space a little closer for human exploration
