Welcome to the website for the Caltech Undergraduate Microgravity Research Group!

This is the team's second year entering NASA's Microgravity University Program. The Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program provides a unique opportunity for groups of undergraduate students to propose, design, fabricate, fly and evaluate a reduced gravity experiment of their choice.


Special Thanks

We would like to thank the George W. Housner Endowed Student Discovery fund, and Professor Joseph E. Shepherd for their invaluable financial backing and support, without which this project would not be possible.


Wondering about the image in our header? Carbon fiber composites have a large range of applications. This carbon fiber origami crane was made in the lab at Caltech and illustrates how versitile the material is.
