Being Italy’s leading academic institution in aerospace engineering, Politecnico di Milano has many projects with the Agenzia Spaziale Italiana. As a testament of this long relation, the new president of ASI Giorgio Saccoccia visited our Department of Aerospace Science and Technology this Thursday. The COMPASS team introduced him to our virtual reality tools for outreach activities, aimed at raising awareness about the challenges and benefits of space utilization.
