A group of Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design students from The Art Institute of Seattle recently won a design competition for NASA’s Asteroid Re-Direct Mission. The mission has an exciting goal—in 2020, NASA wants to capture an asteroid and bring it into an orbit around the moon. NASA held a national design competition, sourcing designs for three different components to be used in its upcoming Asteroid Redirect Mission. Twenty schools’ submissions were selected as winners in the design phase. 

The Industrial Design students from The Art Institute of Seattle worked hard to build their prototypes. During the week of April 25, prototype testing took place in Houston at NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Lab. This is the same underwater tank where astronauts train for their missions.

The students were interviewed both before and after their experience in Houston. Read the article by clicking here: http://blog.invisionapp.com/designing-for-outer-space/

The students who participated in the challenge are all pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design from The Art Institute of Seattle. Their faculty advisor is Zanetka Gawronski.
