ISU-ASS Presents U of Ariz. SEDS Space University Prize

On November 14, 2009, Strasbourg, France's International Space University (ISU), along with the American Astronautical Society (AAS), awarded the University of Arizona chapter of the Students for the Exploration of Space (SEDS) a cash prize for multidisciplinary extra curricular involvement of students interested in space and space exploration.  SEDS is an international student run group interested in space, space exploration and their development.  The SEDS chapter at the University of Arizona was awarded a $250 prize because "their membership had students from business, communications, psychology and philosophy," according to Steve Brody, ISU's Vice-President of North American Operations.

"At ISU, we maximize the potential of humanity to explore and develop space and to benefit our planet from the use of space," continued Brody.  ISU is a world leader in space education, offering a multi-disciplinary program for its international body of space students.  In a press release Brody was quoted as saying, "ISU embraces a diversity of training and opinion and the spirit of inclusivity as essential values in both the exploration of space and its utilization to serve the needs of our planet."

The award was given to Kyle Stephens, President of the University of Arizona SEDS chapter on the U of Ariz. Tucson campus.
