Students from the winning teams of the LPS 2019 Climate Detectives School Award travelled to Milan, Italy, this week to attend for a full-day ESA's Living Planet Symposium (LPS), the largest Earth observation conference in Europe, to receive their prizes. ESA and ASI invited student teams participating in the Climate Detectives school project 2018-2019 to submit their investigations for the LPS 2019 Climate Detectives School Award. A joint ESA-ASI evaluation panel had the difficult task of selecting the four winning teams that would be invited to attend the LPS 2019 and present their projects in an award ceremony on 14 May 2019. Teams from Finland, Greece, Italy and Spain were the winners of the LPS 2019 Climate Detectives School Award.
Following the success of the ESA Academy's Ladybird Guide to Spacecraft Operations training courses in the past three years, ESA's Education Office is offering 30 university students the opportunity to participate again in this course and learn about the fascinating world of spacecraft operations.
Scientists conducting cutting-edge research in computational astrophysics will converge at Rochester Institute of Technology for two workshops in June. Experts from RIT, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Berkeley and other prestigious institutions will speak at the events hosted by RIT's Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation.
