KTH student team selected to fly their experiment on a rocket
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 group of KTH students supervised by N. Ivchenko och G. Tibert has secured the place to fly their experiment on REXUS-30 rocket, to be launched in early 2021. The experiment B2D2 ("Bistable boom dynamic deployment") will demonstrate a deployable boom with magnetic sensors, to be used for science-grade measurement of magnetic field on small space probes.
