Educational Coordinator
The idea of venturing into areas not meant for humans is what intrigues Vinesh Chedi. He considers the idea of floating in the endless vacuum of space to be freeing, and he hopes to have that life-changing experience himself. Thinking about colonizing the dark side of the moon, setting up mining facilities on asteroids, or taking that “first step for man” on Mars, all get his juices flowing and adrenaline pumping. Vinesh is currently attending UNLV in pursuit of a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering, and plans to go on to study Astronautical Engineering.
