Engineers Week Dinner 2020

In celebration of 2020 Engineers Week, the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences presents: 

Space Weather Impacts on Human Exploration of Mars

When will a human explorer visit Mars? This presentation will outline the rationale, current plans, and limitations of future human exploration of Mars in the context of space weather - the dynamic space environment that impacts our space-based and ground-based technology and society.  Current NASA design and engineering efforts to mitigate some of the technological, biological and psychological hurdles will be described as well as ways that you can participate in solving some of these challenges as a NASA Center Intern or in a Western Michigan University NASA Student Challenge team. 

featuring, Mark B. Moldwin, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering, University of Michigan and Executive Director of NASA’s Michigan Space Grant Consortium
