How the design challenge works

Teams are given a list of requirements (RFP) for a space settlement set years in the future, and have  to prepare a detailed design, which they present to a panel of judges on the final day of the Space Design Challenge. The judges include academics, aerospace engineers and representatives from the UK Space Agencies.
