The first Space association of Politecnico di Milano
PoliSpace is the first space association of Politecnico di Milano.
Its main objective is to fill the gap between industry and academia in Italy. The strategy adopted is: propose, endorse and supervise students space-related projects spread the aerospace culture with a global perspective provide students with internship and job opportunities through a network of companies.
PoliSpace is currently designing CubeSat to fly at the end of 2023. Another association’s undergrad team presented a Mars Sample Return mission for an AIAA competition. More projects will be developed in the near future.
To increase our understanding of the chemical makeup of ice deposits on Mars and further humanityhumanity’s goal of being a multi planet species, AIAA American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics has launched a competition to design a cost effective sample return mission to retrieve Mars ice core sample s and ‘I Gelatai’ answered the call with a project with an original design: Ice CREAM Ice Collection and Retrieval Expedition Aimed at Mars mission.
Lexicon design aims to improve the filtering solutions already adopted in the Apollo mission by reducing the required maintenance and increasing the number of possible applications. The system is based on a closed-cycle, involving an inert fluid coupled with a cyclone filter to collect the dust produced inside a dome accommodating the ISRUmachine. The system’s scalability is allowed by 3D printing almost all the components and assembling them in-situ, thus avoiding the transportation of bulky materials.

What will Martian colonist eat? 3D printed food, bioreactors and hydroponic cultivations will be the key of future food chain on both Earth and Mars. Let’s explore the most advanced technology in the food field.
Summer has begun, and whether you are working, studying, or planning vacations, you are also struggling with the heat. Everyone has their way of surviving these hot days on Earth, but how do you manage heat dissipation in space? Five PoliSpace Space-Tech division members asked themselves the same question while designing a heat dissipation system for SARA, a satellite component by Revolv Space.
