Two Technion projects will be tested on board the International Space Station, as part of the Ramon Foundation and the Israeli Ministry of Science and Technology’s “Rakia Mission”. The projects were carefully selected by a scientific-technological committee appointed by the Ramon Foundation and the Israeli Ministry of Science and Technology.
Eytan Stibbe is set to fly to the International Space Station in early 2022.
One of the projects is ‘GALI’ (Gamma-ray Burst Localizing Instrument) and it is led by Profs. Shlomit Tarem and Ehud Behar and their team from the Physics faculty, and the second project is ‘Clear Vision for Optics’ led by Prof. Moran Bercovici and his team, from the Mechanical Engineering faculty.
All projects must now undergo a rigorous design review process in order to be ready to launch.
