Wow, thanks Dave. We are fans of Elon Musk and the SpaceX team. The idea came to Aleksander Knutsen . I encouraged team members to read Ashlee Vance's book about Elon, a fascinating read, particularly his early ideas about sending plants and mice to Mars. https://read.amazon.com/kp/embed?asin=B00SIDCSWY&preview=newtab&linkCode=kpe&ref_=cm_sw_r_kb_dp_3o8izbX21ZT2J Knutsen and our THOR2 team have goals of becoming engineers and physicists-thanks to GSBC and SpaceX for inspiring young imaginations!
We are working on the details of our next launch and will nail down our plans after team members compete in the European Odysseus 2 Space Contest . We will be meeting other students and space educators in Soroe, Denmark at the Danish Technical Institute (DTNU) and in Liberec, the Czech Republic where I imagine we will pick up some ideas. Launching during the solar eclipse will really be exciting.
