Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Energy Harvesting in Space

When a spacecraft is in space, it is challenging to power it for a long time. Current power sources aren't viable for the deep space mission objectives we aim to have in the future. Therefore, we need to think of new and creative ways to power spacecraft. Some potential ideas include spacecraft charging, hypervelocity impacts, hall currents, etc. The project I propose is to investigate these novel ideas or to try and come up with new ones.
