AIAA University of Michigan Showcase

This weekend March 30 – 31, 2012 the University of Michigan is hosting the AIAA Region III Student Conference. We started working on this project last summer and it’s finally almost here. Here’s a quick video we threw together (extra emphasis on the quick and threw part) showcasing some of the cool pictures we’ve taken as a group in the past year.

Sorry for the terrible music. The first song is something I recorded very quickly as well 🙂 Enjoy!

If you’re interested in learning more about the conference we’re hosting, please visit the conference site here.

F-35 Review Video


This is the video I was shown while touring Edwards Air Force Base In early April. Truly a great plane, even among all the skepticism.

Do You Love Uranus as Much as This Guy?

Since this does have some relevance to Aerospace, I just had to post this here. We passed this guy on our way to Chicago O’Hare before our big Aerospace Dream Tour in February. Would you ever do this to yourself?
