Come and visit our stand “COMPASS: Sustainable Space for Smart Life” at MeetMeTonight 2019, on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 at the Indro Montanelli gardens in Milan! You will learn how to deflect asteroids, avoid space debris, and control large satellite constellations, and you will embark for a trip to the Moon while navigating through the junk orbiting all around the Earth!
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.
Every September, citizens around Europe are invited to a very special date with science at the “Researchers Night”, and the city of Milan joins the celebrations organizing its MeetMeTonight event. COMPASS participates for the first time this year by opening our own space control room for space enthusiasts, science lovers and curious citizens to visit.
