Last weekend, a number of QSET members attended the 2016 Queen’s Space Conference. Speakers included Canada’s most experienced astronaut, Robert Thirsk, representatives from the Canadian Space Society, a number of space industry CEOs and more.
Two speakers in particular have a special place in the hearts of QSET members, after they stopped by the QSET room to evaluate and provide insight to our rover design. Eric Choi, Senior Technical Associate at the Institute for Quantum computing has worked in the industry for years and has contributed to projects such as the Phoenix Mars Mission. Ewan Reid is a Queen’s Graduate who, after working in mission control for a number of years, founded Mission Control Space Services and is the acting President & CEO.
These two provided some great suggestions, and we will definitely try to keep in touch!
