The COMPASS team is taking part to the 69th International Astronautical Congress in Bremen, Germany. Camilla Colombo, Davide Menzio, Stefan Frey and Matteo Romano are attending this year’s IAC to present their works in front of the thousands of researchers from the international community that will be in Bremen from the 1st to the 5th of October.
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.
The 2018 AAS/AIAA Astrodynamics Specialist Conference was held 19-23 August at the Snowbird resort, up in the mountains of Utah. COMPASS team members Ioannis Gkolias, Juan Luis Gonzalo and Narcis Miguel climbed their way to the summit to present their latest research on satellite dynamical theory, satellite disposal and collision avoidance.
