The challenge is a crowdsourcing initiative that will help NASA improve future space missions by proposing ways to allow effective reprocessing, recycling, and reuse of onboard resources. They utilize the first principle of "dry distillation" to thermally crack human waste in a device designed to make carbon fiber as a material for 3D printing in space and graphene as a backup wire. The future space program for Mars migration can significantly reduce the weight of the launch. （Hero X information)
They kept brainstorming ideas and discussed the feasibility of the design with students in the AI Foundry, and finally completed and eventually favored by NASA! The experience gave them confidence and a better understanding, and they continued to collaborate in several competitions, and both received good results. They also encourage students interested in mechanical and electrical integration or innovative design to join iOS Club or AI Club to learn more skills. Learn independently, develop soft skills "beyond the textbook", and participate in challenges or competitions in the country or other countries.
HeroX is an innovation-oriented social network that crowdsourcing openly to organizations or individuals. To solicit any challenge in any field through sponsorship on its platform. Participants who are interested in the challenge can submit their solutions to the organizer for the election of the best entries and award them with prizes.
