We are taking CubeSats to Mars

  Ncube-2, a Norwegian CubeSat (10 cm cube) A CubeSat (U-class spacecraft)[1] is a type of miniaturized satellite for space research that is made up of multiples of 10×10×10 cm cubic units. CubeSats have a mass of no more than 1.33 kilograms per unit,[2] and often use commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components for their electronics and structure. CubeSats […]

Help us design a Mars colony.

We need more engineers.

How do I get kids excited about engineering?  The Barboza Space Center is on tour helping to get kids excited about STEAM++ (science, technology, engineering, visual and performing arts, mathematics, computer languages, and foreign languages.). You can follow our work at http://www.BarbozaSpace.com and http://www.KidsTalkRadioLA.com.  We are currently looking for student writers for http://www.KidsTalkRadioScience.com. The U.S. […]

Humans and Space Science

September 2018: Space Are we alone in the universe?   One of the interesting things about being human at present is watching our knowledge of the universe increase. Struggling to understand things that are much bigger than ourselves is something that many people do. There are many ways we can study space, with both Earth-based […]

Extraterrestrials in the STEAM++ Classroom

Extraterrestrial:  Barboza Space Center Project-Based learning The search for extrasolar planets (image: Keplertelescope) Listening for extraterrestrial signals indicating intelligence (image: Allen array) Robotic exploration of the Solar System (image: Curiosity rover on Mars) Extraterrestrial life, also called alien life (or, if it is a sentient or relatively complex individual, an “extraterrestrial” or “alien”), is life […]

Artificial Intelligence Fellowship Reading Lists

Training students at the Barboza Space Center in the area of artificial Intelligence.  Welcome to our reading list. Artificial intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans and other animals. In computer science AI research is defined as the study of “intelligent agents“: […]
