SSETI means Student Space Exploration and Technology Initiative. The project began in the year 2000, through the Educational Office of the European Space Agency (ESA).
Since it was created, SSETI has developed a network of students and educational entities in order to make easier the satellite building projects. Over 400 european students
have done a great contribution to this initiative, as a complement for
their degrees or just spending thier free time. Moreover, many others
have participated or have been inspired by SSETI.
SSETI students work (or have worked) on 3 main projects: SSETI Express, SSETI ESEO y SSETI ESMO.
Teams have to distribute the work of designing, building, assembling and calculating everything necesary to launch a sattelite out of the Earth. How the work is distributed? Students of several degrees related with aeronautics, informatics, physics, telecommunications... are selected and everyone has a task related with his studies. The Mission Analysis team is formed by Physics and mathematics, and our task is to make the calculations needed for the mission. The University of Zaragoza is participating in the three projects.
