What would it take to live on Mercury? Our friends at iSTEM can tell you. Congratulations to Lorelei Sullivan, Jack Adkins, Kassim Srhiri, and Logan Senning for their success in the East Coast Space Settlement Competition that took place this weekend. These students worked virtually with members of the aerospace industry and other students across the country in a design competition, which is an industry-simulation event that provides students unparalleled experience in what it means to work in the real world. iSTEM team members Jack Adkins, Kassim Sirhl, Lorelei Sullivan, and Logan Senning were part of the Vulture Aviation team who were challenged to create a space settlement on Mercury. This competition allowed teams to work around the clock for 24 hours, responding to an RFP (Request for Proposal), to design a community/settlement on a designated planet. At the concluding awards ceremony Vulture Aviation was recognized for many outstanding design elements including, designing a varying gravity level belt system, a solar sail- solar panel solution, creative housing, a detailed network design, and a pressure detector on water radiation shielding. Congratulations! We look forward to hearing more about your experience and the possibility of being on the International Space Settlement Design Team at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida this summer.
