Brian and I presented HiMARC as part of the Frank J. Redd Student Scholarship Competition at the Conference on Small Satellites in Logan, Utah and took second place! Thank you Sonya Warner, the scholarship committee and judges for this opportunity to present our work and attend the conference. We will forward to next year's SmallSat!
The funds will be used to help pay for all the telescope equipment, imagers and software we need to help make HiMARC fly someday. We could not have gotten this far without the amazing support of our sponsors.
Posing in front of massive, unnecessary checks was not my idea, but made for amusing photos. I tried to recycle mine in vain.
