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!
