Fly Your Satellite!


Fly Your Satellite! is an educational programme for university students, created by ESA after the launch of seven university CubeSats on the 2012 Vega maiden flight. Six teams participated in the first edition of the programme, which concluded in 2016 with the launch of three satellites, while in parallel a pilot edition was undertaken to deploy a satellite from the International Space Station. The second edition of Fly Your Satellite! is currently ongoing since 2017, and participating university teams are advancing closer towards testing and launch. The call for proposals for the third edition is now open.

  1. Um desafio interessante!! Um protótipo de um satélite sofisticado, uma nova técnica … tornar ainda mais sensacionais os resultados!? Os satélites são muito importantes na exploração à distância e nas surpresas!! Neste intercâmbio poderá surgir um novo e revolucionário satélite… inovador!!! Quem sabe?!!

  2. I'm pretty sure the title of this video is a subtle jab at SpaceX for refusing to make a course correction for one of their Starlink satelites that had a chance of crashing into another ESA satellite that was in that particular orbit months before starlinks launch. This resulted in the ESA satellite having to make multiple burns to avoid the collision and then to insert their satellite back into its original orbit.
