SpaceRobotics goes all-in at ExpoAstronómica 2019.
Space Robotics visits “ExpoAstronómica 2019” and surprises the attendees with the first public beta of a new Virtual Reality experience: “Apollo 17 VR“.
A 3D-printed scaled model of ESA’s ESTRACK’s 35m antenna is requested to SpaceRobotics by ISDEFE for New Norcia’s DS1 ground station.
Space Robotics was invited to the Insight presentation at the CAB and requested to provide TWINS scaled models.
The very same day NASA’s latest Mars Lander “InSight” successfully reached its deployment location, we were invited to a presentation of this mission at the CAB. A few weeks earlier, CAB had requested a few scaled models of TWINS, InSight’s onboard weather station which they had developed at Madrid; and we provided them on time, right before attending the presentation.
Between the 29th and the 31st October 2018, ESA’s latest open-to-the-public Space-Industry event took place in Bilbao (Spain). The “Space for Inspiration” international conferences, exhibitions and meetings presented a fresh view on the Space Industry to anyone (individuals or company’s representatives) interested in space exploration and in the new possibilities it offers.
Space Robotics original production “BepiColombo The Game” is already in the alpha test version and a public beta will hopefully be available for download in the following weeks. Join us in this adventure, learn more about this project and feel free to contact us if you want to get notified when the game is released.
Another summer begins and so does Summer Schools’ time! Once again we are in charge of designing, preparing, and coordinating all the activities for ESA‘s ESAC‘s annual Space Summer School. Over a hundred kids come to this daycamp every year looking up for fun and friends, but also hoping they will learn awesome new facts about space science and build some useful space-technology skills. Not to disappoint them, we must make a big effort and win a race against time creating devices, writing software and designing new activities for them. But with the latest technology at the service of education and scientific dissemination; and our professional team of physics, engineers, programmers, and educators; success is guaranteed.
We carry out many activities every day and by the end of the month we have accomplished more than a handful of them, so it would be preposterous to describe them all here. But we have intended to make a representative abstract of our achievements in the following lines.
ESA’s ESAC D-bulding hosts during this summer an Artistic-Scientific-Technological exhibition by SpaceRobotics, where planetary exploration is presented in an absolutely innovative way.
ExoMars 2020 won’t be launched until… guess it… 2020, but missions are always designed years before the launching date, so ExoMars’ 2020 Rover’s final design has already been presented. Although we already had figures from previous sketches, we rushed on to create the first available scaled model of the rover’s latest and final design.
How cool would it be for students in schools or universities to learn about the space industry by building their own satellite? Although satellites are much cheaper now and some schools and universities do launch CubeSats once in a while, this is still unaffordable for most of the centers. And even if money is not a problem, time may be, as designing and building a satellite, however small it may be, requires a lot of time. Nevertheless, we found a solution for students to learn about the space industry while having fun designing and building their own affordable satellites in just a few hours.
