ESA Academy's training courses are part of the Training and Learning Programme, that aims at complementing the standard academic formation in space-related disciplines offered in the ESA Member and Associate States’ universities. The goal is to better prepare the future workforce for the space community, and to show students the many opportunities offered by space research, facilities, and applications for science and engineering in fields unrelated to space.
This video was recorded during the Rosetta Science Operations Scheduling Legacy Workshop, October 2017. During this workshop university students learned how science operations scheduling is done at ESA and what tools are used. Exercises were performed with the support of the experts who did the scheduling for the real mission using the actual science operations scheduling software (MAPPS) that produced the final experiment commanding for the spacecraft.
