U-M Student Team to Help Fill the Inflatable Void in NASA Challenge

NASA Big Challenge

This year will be a “BIG” year for many college and university teams, including a team of student engineers at the University of Michigan, as they research, design, and demonstrate novel inflatable systems configured for future lunar operations through a NASA-sponsored engineering competition.

NASA’s Breakthrough, Innovative and Game-Changing (BIG) Idea Challenge asked student innovators to propose novel inflatable component and system concepts that could benefit future Artemis missions to the Moon and beyond.
