Take a hypergravity trip

Paris, (PresseBox) - Scientists interested in hypergravity need to create it for minutes, days or even weeks at a time. Fortunately, ESA's Large Diameter Centrifuge does just that. Based at ESA's ESTEC technical centre in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, the centrifuge is designed not for astronaut training but for scientific research.

Student teams from across Europe are given access to the Centrifuge through regular 'Spin your Thesis' campaigns, organised through ESA's Education Office. Student teams are selected to take part by experts from ESA and the European Low Gravity Research Association. The 2014 Spin Your Thesis campaign is due to take place in September - October; the deadline for submitting your team's ideas is on 3 March.
