Summer of Code in Space

Would you like to be paid to write software for a space project this summer? The ESA SOCIS programme will let you do just that. This is the second year that the programme has been run and it aims to:

  • Raise the awareness of open source projects related to space within the open source programming community, especially among students;
  • raise awareness of ESA within the open-source community;
  • improve existing space-related open-source software.


UKSEDS Open Mission Control Project has again been accepted as one of the mentoring organisations. This year we are looking for a student to help integrate support for the OpenSpace365 ‘run your code in space’ software development kit into Open Mission Control to provide an interactive integrated development and debugging environment. You can read more about the project on our website.

You can find out more about all the projects on offer here.

Find out more on the SOCIS FAQ page.


The application deadline is 27 July, so you don’t have long to apply.
