Space themed essay competition
Become a Scientist for a Day on the Cassini Mission to Saturn. Young scientists are invited to take control of the Cassini spacecraft. Three potential targets have been identified by mission staff and they get to choose the one that Cassini takes an image of. Students have to make their scientific argument in a maximum of 500 words.
The entries will be judged by Professor Carl Murray, the only UK member of the Cassini Imaging team. There are three age categories for judging: 11-13, 14-16 and 17-18. There will be a winner selected from each category. Each winner will receive a goody bag from the European Space Agency and the winning essays will go on both ESA’s and NASA’s websites. The winner of the 17-18 age group will get the chance to spend a week working with Professor Carl Murray at Queen Mary, University of London.
The deadline for submissions is 3rd December at 5pm GMT. The results of the judging will be announced in early 2013.
All essays and enquiries should be sent to email@example.com Details can be viewed here:
