The Colorado Undergraduate Space Research Symposium is an opportunity for students to present their current research and ideas in the Space Industry. This paper and presentation competition allows students to be published in an official conference proceedings as well as compete for cash prizes. Students will also be able to compete for prizes in a poster and demonstration session.
