ESA Summer of Code in Space 2016 with AerospaceResearch.net and the Institute of Photogrammetry (IFP, University of Stuttgart)
This is AerospaceResearch.net’s common ideas page for the European Space Agency’s ESA Summer of Code in Space 2016. It’s an open-source coding campaign where students work on space related software for 3 months and are getting paid 4000€. How awesome is that?!
Read everything, have fun, make space possible!
Constellation brings space to people by means of citizen science. We believe there is an open space for everybody…
„Space, is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space“ – Douglas Adams
We really enjoyed mentoring creative students during ESA SOCIS 2013, 2014 and 2015. We gain a lot and we learned a lot, so we want to share this experience again and support you! We collaborated with Cosmic Dust Group of the Institute of Space Systems (IRS) at the University of Stuttgart. With them, we achieved two new apps, we even supported the European Space Agency (ESA) and their Interplanetary Meteoroid Environment for Exploration (IMEX) project, we released several papers, simulated comets worth 10000 hours of computing power and discussed our findings with an Astronaut and experts. How cool is that? And we want you to be part of this again. So we are re-applying this year and give you three chances to be part of this coding family.
– Be a SOCIS Student!
– Be a SOCIS Mentor!
– Provide a SOCIS Project!
We didn’t expect overwhelming reactions about our ideas and the great support by people also being a mentor. So we would like to expand the mentor and project scale here and please keep on applying for these important tasks.
There is space for everyone!
To give you an impression what we did last time, watch this…
