Get Stratus to Space!

Stratus is a satellite mission being developed by students of the Michigan Tech Aerospace Enterprise. The satellite has a manifested launch through the NASA CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI). The build schedule has been delayed due to issues encountered during hardware assembly. The program is now seeking to replace malfunctioning hardware such that the spacecraft will fly in an operable state.

Adopt-a-Tree: Red Oak Adaptation to Environment

This project will investigate how northern hardwood trees adapt to their local environment by using two related species of red oak. We have collected acorns from across the trees' geographic range, and will plant them in two locations to measure how they perform. Understanding what makes trees thrive will allow us to select the best trees for future climates.
