Mendieta emphasized that Mexican students beat the strongest teams worldwide, such as teams from the University of Zurich, and from the Technological University of Delft.

Mendieta Jiménez congratulated 16 students from the Metropolitan Polytechnic University of Hidalgo (Universidad Politécnica Metropolitana de Hidalgo) who participated in the 2017 Air and Space International Program organized by the company Extraordinary Aerospace Applications (Aplicaciones Extraordinarias Aeroespaciales) and the Space Center U in the Space Center Houston adding that even thought the students do not belong to any of the joint programs with the AEM, their trip shows the huge potential for private participation.
