2017-18 Illinois Space Society Technical Director – Connor Latham
Connor Latham is the Illinois Space Society’s Space Grant team lead this year. He is a freshman majoring in Aerospace Engineering because he thinks designing plane or rocket parts as a job would be more interesting than anything else. As a part of the Space Grant team, he is working on a toggleable active drag system for a high power rocket in order to slow its ascent. His other activities include ultimate frisbee, building drones, and watching Black Mirror.
