This course will discuss how examining the Apollo 9 capsule and its structural design gives us insight into the new Artemis program and our return to the Moon. The course includes examples of analyses that junior aerospace engineering students at Clarkson University completed in collaboration with the San Diego Air & Space Museum. Participants in the course will learn about how space capsule structures are designed and built.
