Friday In the morning, come and watch a live feed of a balloon launched over the desert in southern Arizona, and talk with high altitude balloon experts as we watch the curve of the Earth appear from the cameras. 4pm: Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) will be hosting a Student Business Plan Competition where aspiring student entrepreneurs will pitch their best ideas for a space industry company and compete for prizes provided by the NewSpace Initiative. Be sure to stop by and support these student organizations who are eager about space and the discovery of new things in it.
