  • Gas bubbles reduces the quality of the soldesSoRGE: done in pressurized enviromentCLEAR: finding a solution to the problem, simular to our projectApplications: reparing or improve space crafts, save money
  • Gas flow: create a movement in the soldesNeed a rocket: This phenomena only occurs in reduced gravity
  • Additional tests done for comparison
  • We will seek funding from:We will also seek sponsorships for material and components.
  • We will have access to:We will be able to perform tests…The project is also supported by the Depart… where we have access to there facilities.
  • Alf and Kjell, with years of experinence from baloon and rocket campaigns at Esrange in Kiruna are supervising and supporting the SOLAR project In luleå we are supported by the depart….which we can consult if any problems occure. The team will have a close relation to:
  • Internet is a a perfect way to reach a large audience. First of all we will create a website where u can find our contact info, learn more about our experiment and about the Rexus-project. It is also a place where our sponsors can be presented. Facebook allows us to update the audience with news and pictures about the forthcoming of the project and we can easily answer to questions. The blog is a fine way to update with pictures and information about the project. Youtube and twitter belongs to the future part of the outreach program. On youtube we can publish videos of launch and tests during the project and if there is a large audience we will use twitter as a quicker way to post updates about the project.
  • These are a few examples of the magazines that we will contact to be published so that we can intrest others to space science and inspire other students to participate in projects. Television and Radio allows to do the same but reach a wider audience than by magazines.
  • There is a lot of acitivities at the university where we could give a presentation about our experiment but also about the Rexus project. We would also like to give presentations at high schools so that we can inspire them to find an intrest in science but also just to inspire them to continue there studies after high school graduation.
  • Anders – studying towars master in space engineering and participated in The Bexus project Marvel previous year.Adrian – Hard ware coordinator, studying towards master in aerodynamicsBjörn – soft ware coordinator, master in computer science and imbedded systems.Martin – master in spacecraft and instrumentation focusing on development of electronics. Anneli and Johan are the outreach coordinators. I have been responsible for the outreach programs in several different student groups including seeking sponsorships.
