The title of this news article caught my attention, Nasa Invites Students to Design Technologies for Deep Space. As I began to read the article, I learned that NASA is inviting college students to design technologies that can be integrated into a habitat in which future astronauts could live and work in deep space.  This sounds like a pretty amazing opportunity for those who wanted to go into this type of field.  I wanted to share in case anyone was interested.

“The offer is called the 2013 Exploration Habitat (X-Hab) Academic Innovation Challenge, and it is an effort by the space agency to promote science learning and help inspire a new generation of creative engineers.”

The challenge for those who are interested asks that applications are due by May 2nd. In addition, the challenge for applicants include ” they show plans for the design, manufacture, assembly and testing of an inflatable loft that can be incorporated into an existing NASA-built operational hard-shell protytpe.”
