Finding Your Way Around Space the Proper Way!

All Space Cadets must know their way around Space, so to prepare them for exploring the Solar System, we organized a special workshop, at which our friend Giuseppe Sisinni from La Sapienza University in Rome introduced the Systems Toolkit (STK) software. It allows users to plan Space missions stage by stage – by calculating orbital elements, positioning ground stations for communication, and linking satellites to each other and to the ground stations.

This professional software allows the users to know precisely how long they will be able to communicate with their satellites, at what times, and what changes to orbits they must make to execute their mission. After the introduction, Giuseppe showed some example tasks, which the Cadets also performed in real time, in order to get to know STK better. Now they are all pros in navigating Space!
