The annual American Society for Gravitational and Space Research Ken Souza Spaceflight Competition is open for proposals.
Due date for proposals is 1 September 2017.
About the Competition: The Ken Souza Memorial Student Spaceflight Research Program honors the memory of ASGSR’s long-time friend and leader by encouraging the next generation of student investigators to develop their own ideas for the future of gravitational research. Student members of the ASGSR global community — high school, undergraduate, and graduate – are encouraged to develop creative research proposals in the fields of space life and physical sciences, pairing your experiment with a public outreach plan to share the excitement of the field with others.
The top proposal will receive a free spaceflight for your payload on Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket in 2018 and a $1,000 grant to prepare and develop your experiment for your flight.
