On October 10th, as a part of World Space Week, both CASI Ryerson and Ryerson Space Society are proud to present an opportunity to interact with... industry professionals and peers.
From 6:00pm to 7:00pm Ryerson Space Society will be hosting a space panel discussing the changing environment in space.
Followed by a debate, from 7:00pm to 8:00pm, on the basis of pros and cons of space exploration hosted by CASI Ryerson. The overall best argument will be given a reward! If you are interested in participating in the debate please fill out the following Google form:
We will also be joined by the following experts:

CanSat is a student-run team that competes in Texas every year. CanSat is short for can sized satellite. The objective of the competition changes from year to year. For example, last year the objective was to build a glider with solar panels, that glider was launched to 700m and transmitted data throughout the flight on the way down. This year the objective is to simulate the landing of a space probe by incorporating heat shields into the design, and landing... strategies which would leave an egg intact once it is released from the rocket.

Our structures sub-team builds and design the CanSat and container, and our electronics team designs the circuit board with all the sensors incorporated in the CanSat.
If you are looking to get involved outside of class, CanSat will give you real hands-on engineering experience.
Come out to our new member orientation for more details and future meetings!
If you didn't get a chance to check out CanSat during frosh, don't worry! We will be at the Meet and Greet Expo on Thursday, September 14th from 12 to 2pm in the Sears Atrium. Make sure to come check us out!
