KTH student team selected to fly their experiment on a rocket
New REXUS team from KTH
A team of KTH students was selected to participate in the 13th cycle of the REXUS/BEXUS programme.
REXUS/BEXUS programme offers student teams a unique opportunity to design, build and fly their experiment on a sounding rocket. The rocket is launched from Esrange space base near Kiruna, and reaches an altitude of over 80 km before re-entering the atmosphere.
A team of KTH students is supervised by N. Ivchenko and G. Tibert. In hard competition with student teams from across Europe, the KTH team has secured the place to fly their experiment on REXUS-30 rocket, to be launched in early 2021. The B2D2 ("Bistable boom dynamic deployment") experiment will demonstrate a deployable boom with magnetic sensors, to be used for science-grade measurement of magnetic field on small space probes.
