Great success of participation in the NANOSTAR Student Challenges Phase I: More than 100 students registered

• Phase I registration closed on April 11th.
• The total number of registered students has been 103, which exceeds expectations!

This Phase I is a competitive challenge, in which multidisciplinary teams of students from the NANOSTAR universities will have to predesign a nanosatellite space mission to the Moon. The nanosatellite, equipped with a scientific payload, will perform observations and measurements of the Moon’s surface, while executing a close-distance fly-by.

Students participate in the NANOSTAR challenges in teams. In this Phase I, the total number of registered students has raised to 103 students in 17 teams.

The idea is to learn together as they develop their system solution.
At the end of the competition, students will be asked to hand in a design file with the definition of their solution, a preliminary design report, and to showcase their results in a presentation. An Evaluation Committee, composed of members from all NANOSTAR institutions, will evaluate the received designs and select the winning proposal.

The awarded design will be extended and serve as the baseline for the future NANOSTAR challenges, which will focus on the detailed development and testing of parts of a nanosatellite and related facilities.
