Last Friday the CPT-SCOPE team participated with a stand at the Researcher’s Night at NTNU in Trondheim. During the event several hundred high-school students had the chance to experience science with hands-on experiments. Our stand was a cooperation of the department of physics at NTNU and the CPT-SCOPE team. We had several experiments involving Peltier Elements including a cloud chamber which demonstrated radioactive decays visually.
One of our highlights of the night was meeting US astronaut Kevin Ford. He was interested in CPT-SCOPE and its application for future manned space missions. He flew to space twice and stayed on the ISS for several months.
Also it was nice to meet our friends from the NTNU NUTS CubeSat project again, they also had their own stand at the Researchers night.
Thanks to everyone who made Researchers Night in Trondheim possible!
As always best from the CPT-SCOPE team,
