E422: Origami in Space: Using Folding to Revolutionize Spacecrafts in Splash 2019 (Apr. 06, 2019)
Although most see it as an art-form only, origami has found itself in engineered designs of everything from medical devices to bulletproof shields. In this class, you'll get to learn about how origami has been used in satellites to create what is known as a deployable structure. You'll also get to test how well the origami design works for the satellites by shooting rockets with both unfolded and folded "satellites" attached. This course will involve both the engineering and the art of origami.
