Building microsatellites for the future

Virtual Event Tuesday, October 5, 2021 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

A look at how microsatellites could be used to inspect satellites, do small repairs or refuel spacecraft - and help eliminate the need for risky EVA's ("spacewalks") when something goes wrong. 

Presented by Hank Pernicka, professor of aerospace engineering and Dean's Educator Scholar at S&T.

This lecture is part of the Missouri 2021 Bicentennial Alliance lecture series hosted by S&T.  The series, “Honoring our past, envisioning the future,” celebrates the rich cultural history of our region and explores social and economic growth topics relative to Missourians.
