Astronaut Leland Melvin and SVP of Dassault Systèmes Al Bunshaft announced the Phase 2 winners of the Base 11 Space Challenge.

At today's Next Frontier Spring Innovation Session, we announced the winners of Phase 2 of the Base 11 Space Challenge. Phase 2 is the Critical Design Review (CDR) and although there were no cash prizes associated with this phase, we were excited to share the top-performing teams, as determined by the judges. Al Bunshaft, Senior Vice President of Dassault Systèmes and astronaut Leland Melvin jointly announced the winners.  They are:

  • 1st place - Space Concordia, Concordia University
  • 2nd place - MASA, University of Michigan
  • 3rd place - UBC Rocket, University of British Columbia

It's worth noting that three other teams also remain in the competition, having completed their CDRs. They are: 

  • HALE, Oregon State University
  • PSAS, Portland State University
  • TREL, University of Texas at Austin

Congratulations to all of the teams that have made it this far, especially amid the unexpected challenges of 2020. You can expect your written feedback from the judges in the next few weeks.
