Have you ever wanted to do research in space and experience microgravity? Here’s a chance for you to get a glimpse of just that.
SEDS-Canada will be selecting 4 university teams to design, build and fly a scientific microgravity experiment on board a parabolic aircraft in late summer 2017. Student teams will be challenged to design experiments for research in fields such as life science and fluid mechanics. Each team can select one or two members to fly on board the aircraft for 1 hour as ‘Mission Specialists’ and run the experiments. This is a unique opportunity for undergraduate or graduate students to conduct research in an environment that is unparalleled here on Earth.
We are calling for university students to submit a Letter of Intent by September 30, followed by a detailed proposal due on November 30. For more information visit our competition page.
