AERONÀUTICA – Sixth Edition of the REXUS/BEXUS Programme (Rocket and Balloon EXperiments for University Students)

The European Space Agency, in collaboration with SNSB and DLR, is currently accepting proposals for the sixth edition of the REXUS/BEXUS programme (Rocket and Balloon EXperiments for University Students).

The REXUS/BEXUS programme offers flight opportunities on sounding rockets and stratospheric balloons for experimental payloads designed and developed by European university students. The balloons and rockets will be launched from Esrange in Kiruna, Sweden; in autumn 2013 and spring 2014 respectively.

The students, assisted by a project supervisor, are invited to propose, design, implement and fly their own experiment. Typical experiment disciplines include upper atmosphere and reduced gravity research, radiation analysis and technology demonstration.

Please refer to the programme homepage for further information regarding the research platforms, programme timelines and the application procedure:    

Alternatively, you may visit the ESA hands-on projects portal via the ESA Education website:

The call for experiment proposals will close on Sunday, 22 October 2012.
