Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – October 28th, 2017 – The Next Generation Suborbital Researchers’ Conference accepted two of ASP abstracts for their conference. One is on a first order model of a bone cell and the other describes a microgravity test bed. A huge congratulations goes out to Brien Posey, our Engineering/Technology Working Group Team Lead, for being the first author on one of them. We are also deeply grateful to the two mechanical engineering teams at the University of Toronto who put so much time and energy into designing these devices. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the dedication of our Physical Sciences Working Group Team Lead, Dr. Aaron Persad, who worked tirelessly to build up our relationship with the University of Toronto’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.
Projects like these are a key strategy behind generating flight opportunities for ASP members. The more people we have working on them, the closer we come to realizing our vision of having our members personally travel on suborbital flights into space. If you have an idea for a project or a prototype that you would like to develop further, join our organization and let us help you accomplish this. If the scientific realm is daunting, we need your help too. Realizing our vision takes people with advanced training in other backgrounds as well, be it business, finance, marketing, or information technology.
Also, if you would like to learn more about designing device prototypes, come to our New Space Researchers’ Workshop near Denver in December. More details on this will follow from Troy Cole, our Education and Outreach Officer, and Andrew Butterfield, our Business Development Officer.
