Space Story: to Patras and beyond

General description

Have you ever wondered what's happening in Space?

Do you wanna spend some halara time in Patras?

Do you wanna taste Greek mavrodafni?

If at least one of the answers above is YES, then jump into your Spacecraft and get ready for the ultimate Space Race!!

The world is on the premise of a new series of Space Races, but this time with more participants! The new space frontiers are out there and are waiting for us to conquer them, be that with astronauts or robotic probes. While they get all the fame and the social recognition, let us focus on the work of the thousands of engineers and scientists that design and manufacture the extremely complex space structures that enable mankind to reach out for the stars.The science and technology used in the realization of a space mission, no matter how large or small, has a common basis and philosophy. In this course, we shall explore the basics of the space environment, the space missions, industry, systems and structures, as well as the basics of astrodynamics & spaceflight.

We invite YOU to Patras, to feel the halara spirit and taste some tzatziki by the seaside.

You shouldn't miss this opportunity to visit Patras, which combines beautiful beaches, ancient Greek culture and of course.. the BEST parties!

Patras is waiting for you...
