Drop Your Thesis! Take part in a microgravity experiment

Posted on Updated on

The European Space Agency is proud to announce a new edition of the ‘Drop Your Thesis!’ programme. Through this programme, a team of Master/PhD students will be given the opportunity to carry out a microgravity experiment, as part of their syllabus, in the ZARM Drop Tower Facility, in Bremen, Germany.

This facility is one of the most sophisticated and high-quality research centres of its kind in Europe and boasts a 146 m high tower that provides experiments with up to 9.3 s of microgravity.

The deadline to submit the experiment proposals is 13 February 2012.

The selected team will perform its experiment during ESA’s fourth Drop your Thesis! campaign, to be held during the autumn of 2012.

All the information for this programme can be found here:
