Houston Spaceport Frontier Lecture: Expanding Space

January 31 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The increased capability and low cost of micro-satellites are fueling the way to easy access to space for a wide range of new space explorers. Dr. Reed will describe experiences in creating interdisciplinary teams of students, with industry and government partners, to engage in design-build-fly of operational small satellites that advance new technologies and feed into national initiatives. Combining industry practices with the learning environment of a university helps drive the next generation of space exploration. Involving more than 1,000 students over the years, Dr. Reed’s teams have launched four small satellites with the U.S. Air Force and NASA and partnered on many other projects.
