The Space Enabled research group hosted a workshop to build on our previous three seminars. Led by Professor Danielle Wood, we hosted Ren Freeman as our opening keynote speaker and Dan Hawk, Dr. David Lowry, and Dr. Richard Shope as guest facilitators to further discussion, connect our community, and generate outcomes and continuing questions. The organizing team included Prof Danielle Wood, Seamus Lombardo, Frank Tavares, and Pedro Reynolds-Cuéllar of Team Space Enabled in collaboration with Alvin Harvey of MIT's Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. This event was co-sponsored by the Aero/Astro Department's Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
