Again for the third time, AerospaceResearch.net is proud to be selected as an official mentoring organization for the Summer of Code 2017 (GSOC) program run by Google.
And we are now looking for students to spend their summers coding on great open-source space software, getting paid up to 6600 USD by Google, releasing scientific papers about their projects and supporting the open-source space community.
Until 3. April 2017, students can apply for an hands on experience with applied space programs. As an umbrella organisation, AerospaceResearch.net and KSat-Stuttgart e.V. are offering you various coding ideas to work on:
The Distributed Ground Station Network – global tracking and communication with small-satellites
KSat-Stuttgart – the small satellite society at the Institute of Space Systems / University of Stuttgart
Have you ever dreamt of going to space?! At least as a child you did.
Unfortunately we didn’t quite make it to space ~100km quite yet – but at >22km we (our balloon that is) have been higher than at least 99.99% of you out there. Commercial airplanes fly at 8.5km to 10.7km to give you something graspable to compare it to.
Ever since we saw the first footage of a camera attached to a weather balloon we became fascinated by the idea to take our own images. The visible curvature of our small sphere (speak: earth) floating through space captured was ever so inspiring. You don’t even need to spend a lot of money doing so.
eine kleine Erinnerung:
wenn das Wetter gut sein wird, dann werden wir den spaceballoon am Samstag den 4. März vom Rotenberg in Stuttgart starten, Yeah!
Wir werden ab 09:00 Uhr dort sein. Wenn du beim Near-Space Start dabei sein willst und auch bei der Balloonjagd mitmachen willst, dann trage dich doch bitte kurz bei unserem Meetup ein >> https://www.meetup.com/OpenSpaceLabs/events/237276635/
