My name is Rick Hanton and I'm currently a Computer Engineering student at Iowa State University in Iowa. I am currently the chairman of the board of SEDS-USA. Formerly, I led the ISSS (Iowa State Space Society) and continue to be an active member. I spend some free time helping out SpaceVidcast, who produces online space-related video and news content. I also have worked during recent years for Rockwell Collins a global avionics company based out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
