CSU-Pueblo Foundation to kick off Give Day

There are 23 cross-campus initiatives at Colorado State University that can benefit from the school’s Third Annual #LoveCSUPueblo Give Day.

The CSU-Pueblo Foundation will host the event on Thursday as part of Forever CSU-Pueblo Homecoming week activities. It will start at midnight and close 24 hours later.

Give Day will be a concentrated crowd-funding effort, allowing donors to support one or more of 23 campus-wide initiatives.

“This is a relatively new way for nonprofits to fund raise. It’s a really good grassroots effort,” said Nick Potter, chief operations officer for the foundation.

The crowd-funding website will be open to donors all day in the hopes that students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the university will show their love of CSU-Pueblo by supporting the highlighted fundraising initiatives.

The foundation utilizes crowd-funding to raise money for CSU-Pueblo students, academic programs and departments, athletic programs and student organizations.

ActivArmor a Semifinalist in NASA iTech Program’s call for Innovations in Space Exploration

NASA iTech Semifinalists Rethink Terrestrial Technologies for Space

Artificial intelligence, nanotechnology and 3D printing are just a few of the technology threads pitched during the third cycle of the NASA iTech competition. With an eye on how these promising ideas could benefit space exploration, NASA has selected 25 competition semifinalists.

An initiative by NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD), iTech aims to find innovative ideas that have the potential to overcome critical technology hurdles facing future exploration of the Moon and Mars, even though many were originally meant to solve important problems here on Earth.

These game-changing ideas may come from small or large businesses, academia and other government organizations, giving participants a unique opportunity to present their solutions to NASA.

“NASA iTech is a one of a kind agency activity,” said Kira Blackwell, the NASA iTech program executive for STMD. “We encourage innovators and startups to consider dual use technologies with terrestrial and space-based applications. We are excited that the winners from our ‘Shark Tank’ style Ignite the Night events in Denver and Houston are part of the top 25 semifinalists, whose applications demonstrate the greatest technical viability, likely impact on space exploration and potential for commercialization.”

In July, NASA iTech issued a call for ideas within five space exploration focus areas: Big Data and Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Robotic Capabilities, Revolutionary Concepts for Communications, Medical Breakthroughs, and X-Factor innovations.

Delta 2 joins ‘rocket hall of fame.’

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A rocket known for launching satellites and other spacecraft into the sky for the past three decades is joining a hall-of-fame of sorts for historic rockets.

Officials said Saturday that the Delta 2 rocket will join the Rocket Garden on display at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The “garden” includes rockets used to launch Alan Shepard’s first U.S. human spaceflight as well as launch the mission to the Skylab space station and the first U.S.-Soviet joint spaceflight.

The Delta 2 rocket was retired Saturday after launching a NASA satellite designed to precisely measure changes in Earth’s ice sheets.

The Delta 2 rocket was built by United Launch Alliance (ULA) in Pueblo Colorado. ULA has been a PEDCO member since 1986!
