What Others Have Said
Kate: ESC 2013
It was an absolutely fantastic week, during which we took part in a wide range of workshops (such as building model rockets and finding out about hybrid rocket engines), talks (including some on the aurora, rocket design, history of space exploration, mars missions, space weather and aerodynamics), social activities (including fun competitions, engineering challenges, quizzes, a whale safari, and the dreaded morning gym), tours of local science centres (such as the LIDAR observatory), and our very own rocket launch! After a week of working hard in groups on different parts of the rocket launch preparation, we launched the ESCapist on Friday afternoon - it reached an incredibly height at apogee of 8.2km! I was nominated the Principal Investigator, responsible for pressing the big red button!
