ESEO is alive and kicking!

Education News - ESA Education - Mon, 12/03/2018 - 22:53

The ESEO Mission Control Centre managed by students of the University of Bologna, Italy has just confirmed the acquisition of the first signal from ESEO. The satellite which was inactive during launch, activated itself just after separation from the launch carrier and started transmitting at 22:21 CET. A first assessment of the ESEO telemetry seems to show nominal parameters, but the details will become available in the next hours.

Team Bubbles selected for Drop Your Thesis! 2019

Education News - ESA Education - Mon, 12/03/2018 - 15:23

Last week, ESA Academy selected a team for the 2019 Drop Your Thesis! programme. Team Bubbles, comprising four students from the International Space University in France, applied for the programme two months earlier, with an experiment that aims to learn more about the fundamental physics of sonoluminescence: i.e. the emission of short bursts of light from imploding bubbles in a liquid when excited by sound. Even though a great deal of experimental and theoretical work has already been done in this field, the source and mechanisms underlying the light flash remain elusive to date.
