‘Spin Your Thesis!’

From ESA Education Office:

The European Space Agency is proud to announce the fourth edition of the ‘Spin Your Thesis!’ programme. Through this programme, several teams of university students will be given the opportunity to carry out experiments in hypergravity using the Large Diameter Centrifuge facility at ESTEC in the Netherlands.

‘Spin Your Thesis!’ calls for students to design and develop a scientific or technological experiment that requires hypergravity (between 1 and 20 times Earth’s gravity) for a few hours or days, as part of their syllabi.

The submission deadline for experiment proposals is December 10, 2012.

Up to four teams will be selected to perform their experiments during ESA’s ‘Spin Your Thesis!’ 2013 campaign, whic h will take place in September-October 2013.

We have no doubt that you will find this programme of the highest interest. Could we therefore kindly ask you to spread the word about this exciting opportunity amongst your student/professor community?

The details of this programme, including instructions on how to apply, can be found on the ESA Education Office website at

I thank you very much in advance.

Best regards,
Piero Galeone
Head of the ESA Education Office Tertiary Education Unit
