Artificial Gravity Generation Test


The absence of gravity has always been a constant problem when maintaining life in space in the long term. A group of students and teachers of Nuestra Madre de la Alborada School is developing an experiment intended to provide a proof-of-concept prototype to offer a realistic solution to this problem.

Thanks to your help we’ll be sending and testing our experiment in space on board Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket.

The prototype will be exposed to up to 5 minutes of microgravity. At that time the rotation will start, the sensors on the outward microhab will register the G-force while an internal camera will record the dynamics of the central core rotation which is controlled by a PWM IMCU in order to maintain the target attitude of the ship prototype.

There is no better legacy to humankind than education, for this reason we request and appreciate your participation in this project to maintain and increase that light that guides today's children, making them the explorers of tomorrow.

The Nuestra Madre de la Alborada School, is a non-profit institution without governmental financial help located in Guayaquil Ecuador, South America. We developed a special educational program based on space and astronautics, teaching students the importance of space and science in order to wake up in them the scientific curiosity that our planet is desperately needing.

We have an astronautics and robotics club where our students connect to NOAA satelites downloading climate images using HERMES-Delta -A Satellite in the Classroom program from Ecuadorian Space Agency - EXA, and make different experiments in robotics.

We have published 1 scientific paper in the IAC based on our scientific experience and the way students have improved.

We're very grateful for your interest and participation in the development of our studentes' scientific curiosity that this new generation needs to boost our space community. We need your support. Pledge to our campaign, so we can SEND OUR EXPERIMENT TO SPACE, Pledge today!
