RS Components supporting GSO projects

In the last two semesters, our student projects have once again made great progress. 💫
Our long-standing partner RS Components has made a significant contribution to this by reliably supplying our teams with mechanical and electrical components. 🛠️⚡️

Recent successes such as the test campaign of Project RAVEN, the redesign of the payload Project APTAS or the acceptance of four of our student projects to present their work at IAC24 in Milan would not have been possible without RS and our other partners by our side. 🙌🏻

Our projects are a great opportunity for the students at Luleå University of Technology in Kiruna to get hands-on experience in space technology, building their own satellites 🛰️, rockets 🚀 and microgravity experiments 🔬. Therefore, we are grateful for RS Components’ continued support in educating and training the space engineers of tomorrow! 👩🏽‍🎓💪🏻


Our projects at IAC24

Italy, here we come 🇮🇹🥳
Four of our student projects, RAVEN, APTAS, FENRIR and VOIDCUBE have submitted abstracts for the IAC24 in Milan in October this year and they have all been accepted!
We are proud of this amazing recognition for the great work done by our student project teams! 🙌🏻
We are very much looking forward to a great conference, interesting exchanges and of course great pizza 🍕😉

OHB Sweden partners with Giron Space

We are pleased to announce that we have recently signed a sponsorship agreement with our new partner OHB Sweden. 🛰️
In the future, OHB Sweden will support our projects by providing funds for technical equipment ⚙️, workshops 👩‍🏫 and travel expenses 🛫.
We are very much looking forward to this collaboration and are very grateful to have a strong new partner at our side! 🤝

Git Workshop

Prague Scientific Workshop

GSO was invited to present at this year’s Scientific Workshop, organised by the Space Master Consortium, which took place at the Czech Technical University in Prague, on the 23rd October 2023.

This was a fantastic opportunity for GSO to showcase itself to the Consortium partners and to the representatives of some of the leading space companies in the Czech Republic, as well as to network with Space Master alumni.

2023 Kick-Off

If you are not in a project but are looking to join one, then you may be interested in Kick Off. During Kick Off, the projects based at the Space Campus will present their projects to students, and will also start recruiting new people into their projects. If you want to join a project, then this is a great chance to do that. 

This event if open to everyone, you can join in person, from 8.45 on Friday September 1st in room B/C, or you can join online in a Zoom room.
