Would you like the opportunity to build and test your own small satellite with the support of real space professionals? Can you imagine having the small satellite you have tirelessly worked on launched into space and being able to operate it in orbit around the Earth? Then apply to the new edition of the Fly Your Satellite! programme. Deadline for applications is 5 March 2017.

Following the success of the first Concurrent Engineering Workshop held in September 2016, the ESA Academy’s Training and Learning Programme is again offering university students the opportunity to learn how ESA assesses technical and financial feasibility of space missions. Europe’s leadership in space depends upon its ability to continue developing world-class satellites. To do that, we need to train a new generation of space engineers and scientists.

An extraordinary experience just concluded for four teams of university students. In the frame of the Fly Your Thesis! 2016 programme, they were selected to conduct experiments during the 65th ESA parabolic flight campaign. This gave the opportunity to the participating students not only to execute their experiments in weightlessness conditions, but also to get the direct experience to float in weightlessness, which otherwise – apart from parabolic flight campaigns – is a privilege practically reserved only to astronauts.
