Spacecraft Materials

Satellites help us in our daily lives and beyond. Thanks to them we can understand how our planet changes. But have you ever wondered what a satellite looks like? Let's find out which materials are best for making a satellite by directly testing its properties. We will understand their different mass, electrical conductivity, and how they react to magnetism. And so much more. The activity will be carried out as part of the IRIDE project, Europe's largest low-altitude Earth Observation satellite space program, which will be carried out in Italy and completed within five years with the support of ESA - European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency thanks to PNRR resources. The constellation will also support Civil Defense and other administrations to combat hydrogeological disruption and fires, protect coastlines, monitor critical infrastructure, air quality and weather conditions. Finally, it will provide analytical data for the development of commercial applications by startups, small and medium-sized enterprises, and industry sectors.
