Space Campus Tour
Date 07 Jun 2018, 16:00 - 18:00
Are you curious to space and space travel? Would you like you like to know more about the development of satellites? Sign up for the Space Campus Tour! During this tour at the TU campus you will visit a trial version of the ENVISAT satellite. This satellite was launched in 2002 by ESA and is still the largest and heaviest satellite launched in space for earth observation. In 2012 the mission ended when contact was broken. The students at TU Delft are building satellites with the size of a milk carton and even smaller. In the Cleanroom you can see how these small satellites are built and tested. One them, DelfiC3 was built there and is now still in space after ten years! From the control room at the faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science you can still see it. At the end of the tour you will visit dreamteam Delft Aerospace Rocket Engineering (DARE), which is a student team with the ambition to build a rocket that reaches space! The Space Campus Tour will take place on two days: Wednesday 6 June (starting time 12 pm and 6 pm) and Thursday 7 June (starting time 4 pm and 6 pm) and is in Dutch only. The tour takes about 2 hours in which you will visit several places on campus. The tour starts at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering and ends at the Library. After the tour you can walk back on your own or take the bus, or you can visit the International Festival of Technology. Participation in the tour costs 5 euros and advance booking is required. There are several time slots for which you can make a reservation. Each tour will be guided and there will be plenty of time to ask any questions you might have.
