Dr. Paul Dimotakis (Caltech), Dr. Jakob van Zyl (Caltech/JPL) and Dr. Anthony Freeman (Caltech/JPL) will be the advisors for the 2017 Caltech Space Challenge.
The Caltech Space Challenge is a 5day international student space mission design competition.
Students from a wide range of backgrounds are invited to Caltech, formed into two teams, and given a mission design problem. The teams attend lectures related to mission planning, are given the necessary development tools, and are challenged to produce a viable mission design. This confluence of people and resources is a unique opportunity for young and enthusiastic students to work with experienced professionals in academia, industry, and national laboratories.
