The following documents are important for the programme Spin Your Thesis!. All the applicants are strongly encouraged to consult these and take them into account while applying:
1. Experiment proposal form, ESA
This document must be completed and submitted as the main document in the application process.
2. Experiment report template, ESA
This document serves both as a reference document through the preparation and the execution of the experiment as well as the final report once the programme ends. The selected students will complete this document as the project develops and they will have to re-submit it to ESA engineers and ESA’s Education Office at specific deadlines.
3. Privacy notice and consent form, ESA
This document is to be read and submitted ratified during the application process.
4. LDC summary, ESA
This document summarises the main features of the Large Diameter Centrifuge (LDC).
5. LDC Experimenter User Manual, ESA
This document will be provided to the selected teams with all the information needed to perform the experiments in the LDC facility. The document addresses the general features and operations and gives more technical details and technical data of the LDC in order to facilitate the preparation of the experiment.
6. ERASMUS Experiment Archive, ESA
An abstract of every ESA-sponsored experiment that has been performed on an altered gravity platforms can be found in this database. Recently, it also includes experiments on hypergravity platforms. This resource may be of great help when it comes to defining the team’s project.
4. Experiment record template, ESA
This very short document summarizes the experiment for the database ERASMUS. It has to be filled by the selected team(s) before the campaign, and then completed and handled to ESA’s Education Office at the same time of the Experiment report.
