On October 4, 2011, the European Space Agency proudly announced its ‘Drop Your Thesis!’ 2012 programme. Through this programme, a team of university students* will be given the opportunity to carry out experiments in microgravity using 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. More details on the program are available here: http://www.esa.int/SPECIALS/Education/SEM67TLX82G_0.html
The deadline for experiment proposals, February 13, 2012, is quickly approaching! Now is the time to submit proposals by following the steps outlined here: http://www.esa.int/SPECIALS/Education/SEMOBVLX82G_0.html
Please help to spread the word about this excellent opportunity by forwarding this email to students/professors/organizations that may be interested.
I thank you very much in advance.
