Welcome! to the Sixteenth Asian semifinal & the third Indian National (2019-20)
The Foundation Society requests that contractors propose design, development, and operations planning of the first large space settlement in solar orbit, which will move Earth-crossing asteroids to orbits where they can provide raw materials for refineries and factories in space.
This contest puts high school students in the shoes of aerospace industry engineers designing a city in space that will be a home for over 10,000 people.
Each year the Competition organizers develop a new design concept with its own special requirements. Contest teams work together to create a 40-page report (see samples from index) that addresses the issues and communicates their ideas and designs.
The prize: Sixteen finalist teams from around the world are selected to compete with a new scenario in a live Competition at NASA Kennedy Space Center in Florida, with real engineers sharing their knowledge and experience in both engineering and management.
