The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) invites Romanian students interested in conducting experiments in the field of microgravity to apply to the 2018 edition of the “Drop Your Thesis!” programme, organised by the European Space Agency (ESA), through its Education Office. The students can register no later than 5 November 2017.
The teams have to demonstrate the scientific and technological objectives of their project in order to be selected to conduct their experiment in Bremen, Germany, at the ZARM Drop Tower Facility, which has a height of 146 meters.
A part of the travel, accommodation and hardware expenses will be covered by ESA.
A previous participant declared that the project represented an “opportunity to learn more about how a scientific project is managed in a team”.
Those who want to find out more details about the eligibility of the projects for “Drop your Thesis!” can access this page.
