AE 498 HSO - Intro to Human Spaceflight

Last offered Spring 2022

Official Description

Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in aerospace engineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or department course information for topics and prerequisite. Course Information: 1 to 4 undergraduate hours. 1 to 4 graduate hours. May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary to a maximum of 9 undergraduate hours or 12 graduate hours.

Section Description

Assuming that we have launched astronauts to the Martian surface and they will stay there for a significant amount of time, the astronauts will conduct significant scientific activity. To do this they will need a number of supporting systems. The surface transportation systems project will specify a fleet of vehicles for use in exploring the Martian surface and conducting scientific research. They will necessarily include both robotic exploration vehicles and astronaut transportation vehicles. This project will outline the system-of-system needed and explore one or more of those concepts in higher detail.
