Last Tuesday, October 22nd, members of Yale Aerospace attended the 2013 Breakthrough Awards in New York City, hosted by Popular Mechanics. The event consisted of a series of conferences with innovators in the fields of science, technology, and engineering. Members of the Mars Rover Team and others gave talks about their work. The last conference was Q and A with Peter Diamandis, founder and CEO of the XPRIZE foundation. YUAA members were also invited to a special press event where they got to try out the Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset and see the Boosted Board Longboard created by John Ulmen, Matt Tran, and Sanjay Dastoor.
