It's been a while since we are back from ESTEC but we still have updates coming in! Of course we cannot relive the experience but it's as close as we can get with photos and presentations as reminders:
We have uploaded photos up on the meetup site: http://www.meetup.com/CitizenInventor/photos/20243732/
If you've got some to add, it should be easy enough to add photos to the event!
On top of event photos, here is the power point presentation from our animated super-guide Robert - on areas of researches that is conducted at the facilities, as well as interesting cases of technology transfers. Technology transfer programme aims to facilitates the transfer of space technology to non-space area - ever thought of using satellite technology for your formula one video game? Read on! If you are looking for a summary description of the satellites, launchers and mission timeline, you'll find them all here in the presentation too.
To those of you who have seen Steph from Citizen Inventor talking at TEDxEastEnd a few week's back at the end of Jan (photos here, video later), here is your next chance to get hands on with the spacecrafts that has been waved around on stage (courtesy of Pocket Spacecraft). And of course, curiosity is all you need - so come along to tour around and have a play with spacecrafts. Sign up here: http://www.meetup.com/CitizenInventor/events/149322422/
We shall be heading off to Bristol to Pocket Spacecraft's home on the 23 Feb, where you'd be able to see the facilities for manufacturing one of the spacecrafts that has been waved on stage. You'll be surprised to see the facilities (it's friendlier than you ever imagined) and you will have your hands on the spacecrafts! We'll announce the exact plan closer to date. But to ensure you got the date saved and train ticket booked: We will start the day at 11am and the event is expected to last for most of the day, pub to follow in our usual tradition, of course.
While we are at it, February certainly seems a busy month - we've just announced another two more events organised by our friends as well. If you have any citizen science related project, event, articles - feel free to keep them coming!
Remember, let curiosity take you to places you have never imagined.
