Case Western Reserve University’s chapter of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) recently traveled to the University of Chicago to participate in the annual Spacevision conference.

Members learned from expert panels on a range of space topics, including cosmology, space physiology, and rocket engineering, and connected with other SEDS chapters from across the world. 

Senior Megan Foulk placed second in the research symposium with her presentation on detecting signs of life from space. Senior Diego Martinez and first-year Christopher Riviears placed third in the business pitch competition, proposing a company that uses robots to harvest ingredients for rocket fuel from the lunar regolith.
