ESA Drop Your Thesis! Programme

The European Space Agency is proud to announce a new edition of the Drop Your Thesis! programme. Through this programme, a team of university students will be given the opportunity to carry out a microgravity experiment, at the ZARM Drop Tower Facility in Bremen, Germany.

ZARM is one of the most sophisticated research centres of its kind in Europe and boasts a 146 m high tower that provides experiments with up to 9.3 seconds of microgravity.

The submission deadline for experiment proposals is January 19, 2014.

The selected team will perform its experiment during ESA’s sixth Drop your Thesis! campaign, to be held in autumn 2014.

We have no doubt you will find this programme of the highest interest. Could we therefore kindly ask you to spread the word amongst your student/professor community?

The details of this programme, including instructions on how to apply, can be found on the ESA Education Office Website at
