Felipe Ávila Gómez is a Mexican student of the seventh semester of Nanotechnology Engineering at the Tonalá University Center (CUTonalá) of the University of Guadalajara (UdeG).
This year, Felipe, who is 21 years old, was accepted for the third time in a row to participate in the NASA’s International Air and Space Program (IASP) that will take place in Huntsville, Alabama next October 27th.
The program, which is fostered by 15 countries, such as the U.S., Russia, Japan, and Germany, will gather 55 talented youths from all over the world, who will receive astronaut training, flight, and diving classes. This year, at least five Mexicans were accepted to the program.
When Felipe Ávila was 18 years old, he started to participate in graduate courses, programs and workshops, such as the Research Program of Radio-Astrophysics in the National Institute of Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics (INAOE), where he had the opportunity to work closely with the Large Millimeter Telescope in Puebla; and the Graduate Course on Biomaterials, Nanotechnology, and Nanoscience at the Complutense University of Madrid.
Last January, Felipe, who also speaks Italian, English, and German, was part of the Thinkcamp HUB iLab incubation program, a 4-months intensive program on innovation and entrepreneurship to generate a real social solution that impacts on 10 million people, where he co-founded the startup Grupo Tecsol.
