CSEO 2014The Cyprus Space Exploration Organization will be hosting a presentation titled:

"New Opportunities for Cyprus in Space Exploration"

The presentation will feature two main chapters. One of the speakers will concentrate on the future of space travel, while the other speaker will concentrate on Cube Sats. Clearly, as we all know, CubeSats mainly use ham radio for their communications back to earth (and beyond).

More specifically, the subject of CubeSats will be presented by Dr. Periklis Papadopoulos, who is the head of the team of young scientists who have constructed the first Greek cubesat, known as "Lambda Sat".

The event will take place at the Cyta main offices amphitheater on Wednesday, 17 December 2014, between 18:30-20:00.

All CARS members are welcome to attend.
