23 January 2009
The Second European CubeSat Workshop, organised by the ESA Education Office, was held at the European Space Technology and Research Centre (ESTEC) in the Netherlands from 20 to 22 January 2009.
Following the success of a similar workshop in 2008, there was an even higher level of interest shown by universities and students for this year’s event, with more than 200 participants representing universities from many countries.
The first day of the workshop programme included a series of talks about the status of the nine CubeSats that will be launched as a secondary payload on the maiden flight of Europe's Vega launch vehicle – a flight opportunity offered to universities by the ESA Education Office, in cooperation with the Agency's Launchers Directorate.
