Sixteen CU-Boulder Astronaut-affiliates have flown on forty space shuttle missions. Join some of the leaders in Aerospace technologies in learning about what it takes to be an Aerospace Engineer. In this class you will meet scientists from LASP (the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics), learn about astrobiology, and plan your mission to Mars. You will also get a chance to see one of only a few university-based Mission Operations Centers, where LASP undergraduates and graduates perform mission operations for NASA satellites totaling more than $1.5 billion in value. Additionally, you will get to work on gliders, airfoils, jet engines, and testing composites for aircraft wings. You will also get to work with alternative applications of Aerospace such as wind turbines and parachutes.
