Another academic year came and went. Time really flies, so what better location for the annual reunion of the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology than the Aero Club Como? DAER staff, friends and students gathered at the shore of lake Como to enjoy an afternoon of music, food and even sea plane flights.
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.
The 12th IAA Small Satellites for Earth Observation Symposium took place from 5 to 10 May in Berlin. Cristiano Contini and Camilla Colombo were awarded the second prize as best student paper with their work “Attitude and orbital dynamics fine coupling for high area-to-mass Satellites”. A great success for COMPASS team, PoliMi and DAER!
