Columbia Entrepreneurship Innovation and Design
The Columbia Space Initiative is an umbrella organization composed of independent teams participating in space technology projects. This past year, we competed in the final rounds of two NASA competitions, tested our asteroid anchor in NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Lab, and presented our proposed mission to Mars at Cape Canaveral. In addition, we recognize the opportunity space presents in inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers. We’ve hosted over twenty space-related public events, featuring astronauts and other members of the space industry, with a total of over 1,300 attending.
