This August Noosphere and Spacemodelling Federation will host FAI European Championship for Space Models.
An exciting commemoration of sports, technology and aviation will take place near the famous city of Lviv, Ukraine, on August 21-28. Amateur rocketeers from 15 European countries will fight for the title of champion. As the general partner of the Ukrainian Spacemodelling Sport Federation, Noosphere is also a co-organizer of the exciting event.
Since there are only a few month left, Noosphere, an association who actively supports and promotes amateur rocketry, has dived into organization of the competition. We are getting warmed up and we have already passed a number of milestones: the competition schedule has been approved and the European Championship website went live.
This year, Noosphere is glad to introduce an exciting new innovation: a website that will broadcast the European Championship online. Now everyone will be able to enjoy the more than 300 entertaining and high-powered rocket launches as well as cheer for their favorite team.
Amateur rocketry is an elite sport that requires interdisciplinary skills and a mind for design and engineering. Noosphere is proud to play its part in introducing this sport to society. The initiative was supported by the American Chamber of Commerce (ACC) which will post an official bulletin on its website with the latest news of the upcoming event to its members.
The Noosphere team has prepared a full program, so there is still a lot of work left to do. The championships will include an opening ceremony, workshops for timekeepers and classes for children.
We believe that the European Championship will be a turning point for this sport and popularize both amateur rocketry and aeromodelling as it demonstrates Ukrainian’s status as one of the few space-faring nations in the world.
