If space exploration and space technologies pique your interest, have we got a cracking good season for you! It seems that all space enthusiasts will be quite busy this autumn whether tracking industry news, participating in space hackathons or joining different celebrations.
From September 25-27, Dnipro Kamyanka aerofield welcomed 44 space modelers from 8 Ukrainian regions to participate in the Ukrainian Space Models 2020 Championship.
This spring, Noosphere participated in the search for the burial site of Alexander Pol in Sevastopol Park of Dnipro, which was believed to be the site of the Lazarevska Сhurch. The search became a launching point for a new project under the scope of Noosphere Engineering School: Noosphere Archaeology.
On September 10, the first stage of the Vernadsky Challenge engineering startup competition was completed. This year, the international competition became even more global. The number of applications almost doubled compared to 2019. The organizers received 132 applications from 36 countries.
Virtual competitions are a completely new competition format in spacemodeling. Until this year, no one considered the possibility of such competitions. Due to the postponing of most international competitions, especially the 2020 World Space Modeling Championships and a full slate of World Cup competitions, the World Air Sports Federation (FAI) has introduced a web-based contest – World Space Modeling Virtual Open Meet.
