There is a problem with the latest update of tikz which is
loaded by default bx beamer. Run this document with xelatex
instead of pdflatex and it should work:


% AERO 4907B (Satellite Design Project.  2014 - 2015 academic year - 
Thrusting Discussion
%  package declarations
\usecolortheme{beaver}%                        for presentation
\useoutertheme{infolines}%                     put back for final compile

\def\psSatPair{\pst at object{psSatPair}}
\def\psSatPair at i{%
   \begin at ClosedObj%
  \end at ClosedObj%
\begin{frame}{First Mode}
       % \psgrid[subgriddiv=1,griddots=10,gridlabels=7pt]%


pst-pdf is not needed with xelatex.
