PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Although scientists and engineers at NASA may be the first people to come to mind when thinking about a space mission, there are many different types of individuals, organizations, technologies, and tools that need to be coordinated and integrated to enable mission success. Building on analysis completed by a capstone team at Michigan State in spring 2020, this capstone team will develop a creative, computer- or technology-based way to visualize and demonstrate the people, organizations, and supply chains that make the NASA Psyche Mission possible.

This work was created in partial fulfillment of Pennsylvania State University Capstone Courses. The work is a result of the Psyche Student Collaborations component of NASA’s Psyche Mission (https://psyche.asu.edu). “Psyche: A Journey to a Metal World” [Contract number NNM16AA09C] is part of the NASA Discovery Program mission to solar system targets.
