COMPASS stand at MMT2018

A journey through space at COMPASS control center in MeetMeTonight 2018

For the second year in a row COMPASS joined MeetMeTonight, Milan’s celebration of the “Researchers Night”. Hundreds of visitors of all ages stepped into our control room September 28-29, discovering about the daily services provided by satellites, the risks posed by space debris and the challenges of interplanetary travel. And if this were not enough, this year we introduced a brand-new virtual reality tour among all the manmade objects orbiting Earth.
