DREAM - DRilling Experiment for Asteroid Mining

Everyone has to start somewhere. We started our Space adventure by working on the DREAM project, implemented by Wrocław University of Science and Technology as a part of the REXUS/BEXUS (Rocket/Ballon EXperiment for University Students) program organized by the European Space Agency in cooperation with the Swedish National Space Council (SNSB) and German Space Agency.

Cele projektu

To explore the drilling process in microgravity and vacuum conditions prevailing in Space. The main difference between this mission and missions by CBK PAN (Centrum of the Space Exploration Polish Science Academy) is that the whole experiment was conducted in Space conditions, and samples hadn’t been collected for further research in a laboratory on Earth. • Exploration the behavior of drill cuttings under vacuum and non-gravity conditions • Analysis of the influence of drill bit geometry on the spatial distribution of drill cuttings • Observation of drilling process • Validation of the vision system for drilling process control

Efekty projektu
