The students of UEC-PNO Trinijove entered the CLeDi Challenge with great enthusiasm. Here some updates regarding their local activities.
January 15th, 2020 – Challenge kick-off
CLeDi students watched the first video of the CLeDi project. The video aimed at showing the challenge and providing information about the team location into the space. They will be located on a star called Ash-Shira, near the so-called Winter Triangle, Orion’s shoulder and the Dog’s Star in the year 2040. The outside temperature on this is -200 Celsius degrees and the gravity is aprox. 10% of Earth’s gravity.
The students prepared their on-board template as well with the aim to register all their project activities.
January 22nd, 2020 – The Solar System
A workshop has been organized in order to remind and share information related to the location and the characteristics of the planets in the Solar System. Based on the better understanding of the Solar System, the students may start to make speculations about conditions on the star that has been previously assigned to them for the CLeDi Challenge.
January 29th, 2020 – First experimentation of Stellarium program
The students experimented with the Stellarium program and looked up for information regarding the temperature and the gravity on the planets from our Solar System. Starting from that, they managed to make some assumptions regarding conditions on Ash-Shira star.
