Chad Cerutti

Chad is a co-lead on the Bioastronautics and Life Support Systems (BLiSS) team, working directly with NASA to develop technologies for astornauts. He is currently getting his BSE in Aerospace Engineering with a minor in business, and he hopes to use his degree to one day launch a space startup (pun intended). He is extremely interested in the field of extraterrestrial human civilizations, with a keen focus on lunar habitation and all the systems required to make it possible. Chad hopes that his work will one day give him the chance to step foot on the moon.

Catalina Garza

Catalina will graduate in May 2021 with a BSE in Climate and Space Engineering concentrating in Space Instrumentation. She will continue her studies at Michigan pursuing an MEng degree in Space Engineering. She served as one of the leads for the 2021 Bioastronautics and Life Support Systems project and plans to serve as a lead again in 2022. She has a strong interest in Space Medicine particularly the effects of radiation on humans. She hopes to one day play a key role in the first human spaceflight to Mars.
