Chemistry students at Carnegie Mellon and ITESM collaborate to help NASA and IMP design a next-generation fuel system for a mission to Mars.

In this activity students in 2 groups and must work together to supply fuel for a mission to mars. The first group, from CMU is working with NASA to develop a set of reductants. The second group, from ITESM is working with IMP to develop a set of powerful oxidants.
