Hour 3 -- Athena Roberts and Antonia E. D'orsay (Executive Director of the Trans 100) on transgender issues. Lynne Nethken joins the conversation...
"Athena Roberts is an aerospace engineering student at Arizona State University. She is in her junior year and is interested in developing advanced propulsion and radiation shielding systems and ways to dramatically reduce the cost to Earth orbit. She works on the AZLoop SpaceX Hyperloop competition team as a propulsion engineer. She enjoys cuddling with her boyfriend."
Lynne Nethken is a Masters student of Mechanical Engineering in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport, and Energy at Arizona State University. Her studies focus on astrodynamics and controls theory for satellites and other space flight vehicles. She is the Project Lead and Team Captain for AZLoop, a team of over 100 students from four different universities across the state of Arizona competing in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. Together, the team is attempting to design and build some of the first prototypes for the revolutionary transit system.

Josh Kosar is an undergraduate robotics engineering student at the polytechnic school of the Ira A. Fulton schools of engineering. He runs the Rossum rumblers robotics club, works on autonomous disposable robots for space, research on human/robot interaction and new methods of optical flow in machine vision. He is the founder and project lead of Azloop, a team of brilliant engineers dedicated to designing the future of transportation. In his free time, he likes to cuddle up with his brand new baby, Jasper.
AZLoop is Arizona's SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition Team. We are comprised of more than 75 undergraduate and graduate students from Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and Thunderbird School of Global Management. The SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition was created by SpaceX to challenge university students worldwide to engineer and build the best Hyperloop pod imaginable. In Competition II, the single criterion for success is maximum speed. Through unwavering perseverance and the innovation Arizona's universities are nationally recognized for, the fastest Hyperloop pod is exactly what the brilliant members of AZLoop are on their way to achieve.
If you are interested in joining our team, please email email@example.com. We are recruiting for students in all areas of study, including engineering, business, computer science, and many more. You must be a registered student at an Arizona university and a minimum of 10 hours per week time commitment is required.

Antonia E. D'orsay is the Executive Director of the Trans 100 and a recognized expert on Transgender lives who has worked to in homelessness, poverty, substance abuse, personal development, and organizing Trans people for over a decade, with a focus on the personal, political, and pleasantly humorous aspects at the same time.
ABOUT The Trans 100...
The Trans 100 is an International organization recognizing excellence in service to community by Trans People and for Trans people.
The Trans 100 is being set up by Antonia D'orsay, with immense gratitude for the work of Jen Richards, Crispin Torres, and Rebecca Kling in the past.
The Trans 100 celebrates excellence within the trans community. Our mission consists of three parts:
Provide an overview of the breadth and diversity of work being done in, by, and for the transgender community across the United States.
Act as a resource for the transgender community and our allies around the globe.
Provide support and resources to those organizations operated by, working for, and in the interest of Trans persons throughout the world.
In this way we hope to highlight exceptional work done by and for trans people, promote those who may not otherwise receive recognition, and increase positive visibility for the trans community as a whole.
The Trans 100 is in the process of determining whether to operate under a 501c(3) or 501c(8) status, depending on the organizational efforts to establish a lodge or similar system. This is after an effort was denied certification at the state level, although that issue has since been resolved.
The goals of The Trans 100 are broad, and given the current climate of and dearth of social and medical access, we seek to alleviate the challenges and needs of the trans community, both in the United States and abroad.
Applications will be filed (again) with the Internal Revenue Service on March 31st, 2017 for organizing as one of the above forms of service.
