Event Details & Abstract: 

LASP research scientist and recent CU Aerospace Engineering Sciences Ph.D graduate, James Mason, will describe some of the early results from LASP’s latest CubeSat project, MinXSS, which focus on the energetic process that occur in the sun’s atmosphere. He’ll reveal lessons-learned from the student-led project and how the team will apply those lessons to MinXSS-2, scheduled to launch in the first half of 2017.

The main LASP building is located on the University of Colorado’s East Campus Research Park. Built in 1991 and expanded in 2006, Mission Operations & Data Systems, Engineering, and LASP Administration are located in this building.
