Naples, Italy -

This year two SICSA students and a faculty Olga Bannova presented technical papers at the IAC 63 in Naples. Last year graduate MS-Space Architecture student Thomas Hockenberry presented results of two projects he and his team had been working during 2010-2012 academic years: "A Multipurpose Mars Vehicle for Payload Delivery and Surface Operations" and "Designing Tomorrow's Lunar Habitat with Today's Technology". SICSA's last year Master of Architecture graduate student Stacy Henze presented his Master thesis project "Re-configurable Building System for Spacecraft Interiors, Equipment Support, and Human Accommodations".

Stacy's and one of Thomas' papers have been suggeseted for publication in the prestigious Acta Astronautica Journal.
