Students learn about the universe in Space Exploration Club

Will Sherwood

The Space Exploration Club, organized by Ethan Rose ’22, plans to focus on a variety of space disciplines in a time when SpaceX has risen to fame and American space missions have become more frequent. .

The club expects there to be human colonization of Mars in the near future and wants to educate club members about that process.

Rose says they will discuss the stage humans currently sit in terms of exploration, talking about rockets, the logistical challenges of Mars and the plausibility of permanent settlement there.

“We hope to organize events with guest speakers as well as field trips for model rocket launching,” Rose said. “We are all very lucky to be living through such an exciting time—there are a lot of developments in terms of space travel, and scientists are making new discoveries about the universe.”
