Final Flight / Science Report

The Miura II payload shall explore possible applications of reusable, expandable soft-shell structures in a near space environment. The deployable structure will attempt to recreate thermal and barometric conditions similar to the International Space Station in order to test the application of the structure to human spaceflight. The goal of Miura II is to build upon the Miura origami folding technique explored by Miura I in the HASP 2017 flight. Miura II will be a technological demonstration for large-scaled expandable soft-shell structures. HASP allows Miura II to test the viability of a thermally-insulated, pressurized, reusable soft-shell structure in a harsh near-space environment where temperature, pressure, and other environmental factors are more accurately represented than during testing on the ground. The Miura II team will be comprised of undergraduate engineering students from the University of Colorado Boulder. The management and team breakdown will include a project manager, systems engineers, team lead engineers, and a faculty mentor from the Colorado Space Grant Consortium.
