Introduction to the Mission Idea Contest

Follow us on Mission Idea Contest on Facebook

The Mission Idea Contest (MIC) was established in 2010 to provide aerospace engineers, college students, consultants, and anybody interested in space with opportunities to present their creative ideas and gain attention internationally. The primary goal of MICs is to open the door to a new facet of space exploration and exploitation.

The development of micro/nano-satellites started as an educational and research program primarily at university laboratories. As micro/nano-satellite technology matures, it has spread rapidly across academics and industry for practical application. In the MIC8, we encourage contestants to propose how to maximize the capability and function of multiple nano-satellites for the benefit of humanity.
