Spin Your Thesis! 2018 open for proposals

Sometimes it’s good to get into a spin. Particularly if you are a student wanting to run a hyper-gravity experiment. For the ninth year, ESA’s Education Office is open to submissions for its Spin Your Thesis! programme.
Spin Your Thesis! allows students to carry out experiments in hypergravity conditions at ESA’s Large Diameter Centrifuge (LDC). Very different from the desktop centrifuges found in ordinary laboratories, the LDC is a world-class instrument. It is eight metres in diameter, and so large that it is housed in its own hall at ESA’s technical heart (ESTEC), The Netherlands. It can hold an experiment of up to 80kg in mass and spin so fast that it simulates a pull of gravity up to 20 times larger than that experienced at Earth’s surface.
