UND Capstone Projects

My alma mater, the University of North Dakota Space Studies Department, has rolled out websites for its 2015 Master’s Capstone projects.  They are:

Vision of Venus:  A mission proposal for an orbiter and two balloon systems to explore Venus.  The goal of the mission is to search for organic chemicals in the upper atmosphere of Venus.  The proposed mission would launch in 2021.

Lunar Impact Crater Explorer:  A mission proposal to explore the South Pole Aitken Basin also to be launched in 2021.  This region of the Moon contains ice and thus, is a key focus for lunar research.

Good luck to both teams with your presentations!
