May 13, 2019 Using collaboration rather than competition, Timothy Nuber’s team wants to launch a university-built rocket into space Whether it’s landing the first human on the moon, launching the first satellite into orbit or capturing the first images of Mars, space exploration has long been a competition led by a handful of organizations vying to become “the first.” But a Rutgers student said this competitive atmosphere deters some of the brightest minds who could make innovation happen faster, so he decided to start his own space effort.
