Space Mission Predesign Challenge. Second edition

ONLINE REGISTRATION: Open in September 2, 2019!

This NANOSTAR challenge consists in predesigning a nanosatellite that will be launched in LEO to perform an ambitious scientific mission. The goal of the mission is to verify the survivability in space of a marine photosymbiotic species of worms (Roscoff worms), which may one day play an essential role in the creation of artificial ecosystems for deep space exploration missions. The scientific payload will monitor the metabolism of the worms and their efficiency for urea and air recycling via video observations and measurements.

Student teams must create a preliminary design of a complete space system to achieve this mission, using the tools and methodology provided by NANOSTAR.
