Back in September of this year, the OSCAR-QUBE team was celebrating a successful hardware integration into the ISS’s ICE Cubes facility by ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet. This was done in part of the ESA Education Office’s OYT! programme, in which the students must propose their own experiment to be launched to the ISS. The team managed to do this at an impressive pace considering the scientific and safety requirements their experiment needed to fulfill.
Fast forward to today and the student team behind experiment OSCAR-QUBE presented at both the World Expo and the IAC in Dubai. Their hard work has been rewarded with the Hans von Muldau team award for the best team project. It shows that the “hands-on” approach that ESA Academy offers students leads to fantastic experiences which form the foundations of their future careers in the space sector and steers them to actively make contributions to the advancement of science and technology.
It’s not the first time that ESA Academy teams receive this award. In 2015 and 2017, the FELDs and STAR experiments from Drop Your Thesis! campaigns also received this coveted prize!
