Both my technical project and STS research are related to the life cycle of propellant. My subgroup of the technical project originally focused on formulating propellant for an M-class rocket, while my STS research focused on the impact that the decommissioning process of waste propellants has on the community of Radford, Virginia. However, after the government said that we were not allowed to manufacture our own propellant, my role switched entirely to crafting a detailed plan of action rather than manufacturing.
