So I posted some info about a contest we’re doing a little while ago, but I just wanted to officially wish a happy birthday to Students for the Exploration and Development of Space and explain who we are.

SEDS is a group that was started back in 1980 by Peter Diamandis, Bob Richards, and Todd Hawley, students at various universities.  Since 1980 the group has pushed for more exploration and development in outer space and has had many yearly conferences for students to meet and openly conspire about the future of space.  The group was there at the first Space Shuttle launches (Peter went as media actually) and will be there at the last launches.  We’re always looking to unite all students in the United States and around the world so we can rally together to find the best reasons and ways to explore the cosmos.

If you want to know the full story of all the space groups, I advise checking out “Reaching for the High Frontier“, a book about space groups.
