Bailey Burns is an Aerospace Engineer at Paragon Space working on life support for the future of humans in space, including the next HLS lunar lander proposal with Dynetics. She is also a graduate student studying Space Resources at the Colorado School of Mines. Her focus is on lunar regolith and dust mitigation on the lunar surface. Bailey has also participated in HI-SEAS as an analog astronaut studying lava tubes in a two-week simulated moon base mission, complete with lots of dehydrated food. Bailey hopes to use her platform to show everyone can bring their own skillset to the new space age, and have fun while doing it, which she does as an official Rubik’s cube ambassador.
