On 12th and 13th of March, the CubeSat Team (represented by Gerard, Raffaele, Christian e Andrea) participated in the Kick-Off Workshop of Phase 2 of the ESA Education Office “Fly Your Satellite!” (FYS) Programme. The ESA Education Office selected the following satellites for Phase 2:
- [email protected] (Politecnico di Torino, Italy)
- AAUSAT 4 (Aalborg University, Denmark)
- OUFTI-1 (University of Liege, Belgium)
In addition, the AAUSAT5 student team (from Aalborg University) was invited to join the workshop, in the framework of a collaboration between the Education Office and the ESA Human Spaceflight and Operations (HSO) Directorate.
ESA experts presented a lot of interesting things, in particular the thermal vacuum and vibration test that [email protected] will undergo in next months! Moreover, this workshop gave us the opportunity to meet some of the members of the other two teams.
