Space Adventures by Stanford Students & Mentors
Prof. Bob Twiggs
Consulting Professor, Space Systems Development Laboratory

The Stanford University Space Systems development Laboratory in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics is now going on it's tenth year since its establishment in January 1994. The program objective in SSDL was to teach graduate students Systems Engineering through hands-on project based classes.

What has been accomplished to date. Students have built and launched two microsatellites. There are a number of new smaller picosatellites under development with starting launch dates this year. A group of undergraduate students took on a challenge only attempted by Japanese graduate students at the annual Black Rock Desert Rocket program - ARLISS. What did they learn? We also have a new, active weather station in Antarctica with live pictures and datea being returned daily.

What is in the future for SSDL? Maybe the Moon.
