The IET Satellite Network recently partnered up with the British Interplanetary Society (BIS), the Space Universities Network (SUN) and UK Students for Exploration & Discovery in Space (UKSEDS) for the final of the UK IAF Competition.

Six finalists presented to the judges in London earlier in the summer, they were as follows:
Undergraduate finalists Eleanor Frost, Adam Jago-Williams, Esme Hotson-Moore and postgraduate finalists, Bea Baharier, Thomas Cheyney, Carlo Convenevole. 

The winners  were Undergraduate - Eleonor Frost - University College London - Investigating the Feasibility and Design of a Microgravity Surgical Workstation and Postgraduate - Thomas Cheyney - Northumbria University - In the Interest of All Countries - Ensuring Equitable Access to Space Resources

We also filmed all the finalists on the day for our channel and the presentations, together with a write up courtesy of the BIS can be found here in this blog

Congratulations to all the finalists and winners.

The Satellite Network is pleased to announce its collaboration with the following organisations.

97b904639572f0fbbbc8497a3cf2f7cb-huge-biThe British Interplanetary Society (BIS) promotes the exploration and use of space for the benefit of humanity, by connecting people to create, educate and inspire, and advance knowledge in all aspects of astronautics.

The British Interplanetary Society is one of the world’s leading think tanks on space development. The BIS organises lectures and conferences, produces general and technical publications, brings its members together to network and cooperate on projects, informs space policy and it represents the UK in space activities throughout the world.

8a0ab378f7723acddbe76588ac6db901-huge-suThe Space Universities Network provides resources and events to support university teaching staff of space science and engineering in the UK

They aim to enhance the quality of learning and teaching by providing support and resources to the higher education space science and engineering community. Theywish to help create a skilled workforce of graduates who can meet the challenges of future space exploration.
