Iridium NEXT Class of Scholars: Chris Nie shares experience at Mars Society’s International Mars Convention

Chris is one of three winners for the 2013/2014 Iridium NEXT Mission Team Scholarship, awarded annually to the best aerospace engineering students in the world. We recently shared a blog post on the Mars Society’s Mars Atlantic 365-day mission, and we were excited to learn that Chris had attended the Mars Society’s International Mars Convention in August. He shares his experience at the convention and provides us with some insight on his current academic path.
