 MAE department chair Stephen Robinson and graduate student Etan Halberg have recently been featured in an article published by Space.com. The article talks about the development of a vehicle that would help in the case of medical emergencies in space. This vehicle, called the X-37B, hopes to substantially improve the safety of astronaut landing from space to earth. In the past, landing has been very turbulent and has even injured healthy astronauts. Etan Halberg, a member of the UC Davis HRVIP team, has been working on this specific area of X-37B development. His presentation with the NASA Future In-Space Operations group has been highlighted in the article. Professor Robinson also provided his insight on the matter.
