Space Prize Roundup - May 26-27

The 2009 ISDC, including numerous space prize, award, and competition talks and events, is starting.

Reach for the Stars Rocket Contest at ISDC 2009 - Space for All

NASA Means Business 2009 finalists - including links to the teams' work to

  • Design and prepare a Constellation Program Branding Strategy, and
  • Illustrate that strategy in a 30-second video public service announcement (PSA) production.

Some of the proposals included competitions and prizes of different sorts (Constellation-themed model rocket contests, video contests, etc). Some of the ideas seem like they might be useful for other parts of NASA, or commercial space organizations, too.
