DayStar was awarded the SpaceX Grand Prize tonight for our efforts at the 2013 AAS Guidance Navigation and Control Conference! Even against stiff competition from MIT, the USAF, and Texas A&M (see conference program here), DayStar prevailed. Thank you to all that helped us along the way. This is a great validation of the hard work and long hours we have put in over the last 6 months.
In addition to a plaque from SpaceX, DayStar received a $1,000 check.
Note: All 4 team members deserve equal recognition for this award. Apparently logistics master Nick Truesdale convinced them to only put one name on the certificate (and check) 😉
