2015 Caltech Space Challenge 03-30-15

This year's Caltech Space Challenge involved 32 international students and challenged them to design a manned mission to an asteroid. The students formed two teams, and had five days to design an asteroid-landing mission concept so people could mine for resources that may one day enable astronauts to land on Mars.

Undergraduate Wins Prestigious Student-Athlete Honor 03-25-15

Rob Anderson, a junior on the Caltech men's basketball team, has been named to the 2015 Allstate National Association of Basketball Coaches Good Works Team. Anderson, who is studying mechanical engineering and business economics and management, was selected for his extensive work researching and designing sustainable energy projects. "After the Solar Decathlon ended in autumn of 2013, I began looking for another engineering sustainability project," Anderson says. "I noticed there were a few empty gas-engine go-karts in Fleming and I realized I could re-engineer them to use electric power… That's basically how the Sustainable Vehicle Club was born.” [Caltech story]
