NEW DEADLINE: November 4, 2019!!!!! NANOSTAR is a European project to support the training and development of student nanosatellites in the south west of Europe. This NANOSTAR challenge consists in predesigning a nanosatellite that will perform an ambitious scientific mission. The goal of the mission is to verify the survivability in space of a marine […]
The MTT-Sat Challenge is a worldwide competition for teams of undergraduate and graduate students to design and build radio frequency (RF) and microwave hardware for small satellites. The most promising designs will undergo space environmental qualification testing and will be incorporated in a cubesat, which will be launched into orbit (in case MTT-Sat Challenge secures […]
ESA invites university student teams from ESA Member States, Canada and Slovenia that are developing a one, two or three-unit CubeSat with mainly educational objectives to propose their satellite for the new edition of the “Fly Your Satellite!” (FYS) programme. Fly Your Satellite! is an educational programme for university students, created by ESA after the […]
Isae-Supaero, in collaboration with Onera and the University of Toulouse, has produced EntrySat, a small satellite designed to study the atmospheric re-entry of space debris. This small satellite, a Cubesat of 3 units, was launched on July 3 from the International Space Station. Furthermore, Robusta-1C MTCube, a cubesat of 1 unit, was launched on July 5 […]
MOON INVADERS from Universidade da Beira Interior (Portugal) and Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain). In this Phase I competitive challenge, 15 multidisciplinary teams of students from the NANOSTAR universities have predesigned 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 […]
On 20th and 21st May 2019, the students from Universidade da Beira Interior (Portugal) attended a Workshop on IDM with Jean-Luc Le Gal.
Yesterday, Monday May 13 at 23:59 the Phase I Deliverables Submission was closed. Now starts the evaluation period. This NANOSTAR challenge consists in the predesign of a nanosatellite/small satellite space mission to the Moon. The satellite, equipped with a scientific payload, will perform observations and measurements of the Moon’s surface at a close distance during a fly-by. […]
