Are you fascinated with space research? Are you a creative team player who enjoys thinking beyond the boundaries of planet Earth?
All Utah State University students are invited to attend the opening social of USU’s Get Away Special “GAS” Team at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12, in ENGR 201.
“The GAS team is a student-run team focused on designing and building CubeSats (cube satellites),” says Carter Page, team coordinator. “We recently completed the successful GASPACS mission and have begun working on our next project. We invite all students to get involved in this unique opportunity. No experience is necessary.”
USU’s GAS Team, which takes its name from a former NASA program that enabled groups outside the agency to fly experiments of their own design on space shuttles, is largely responsible for one of Utah State’s most well known achievements: USU has sent more student-built experiments into space than any university in the world.
“You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to join our team,” says Page, an undergraduate mechanical and aerospace engineering major. “We need people with all kinds of skills and talents — graphic design, liberal arts, management, education, marketing — you name it. We aim to complete and launch our next satellite by 2024, so all help is needed.”
