Kuriki Award for Young Professionals

ZARATHUSTRA’s PI, Mario Merino, has been awarded the prestigious Prof. Kuriki award to young professionals by the Electric Rocket Propulsion Society (ERPS) for his contributions to the development of Electrodeless Plasma Thrusters (EPTs). At the award ceremony, which took place during the recent International Electric Propulsion Conference in Boston, MA, prof. Merino declared that “this award is a great recognition and encouragement for the continued work on EPTs and the ERC ZARATHUSTRA project.”  Thankful for all the support received from his team since the beginning of his research career, Mario stated that the award is as much theirs as his, and promised to keep working with curiosity, responsibility, and dedication in the field of electric propulsion.
