The first Space association of Politecnico di Milano

Polispace principles

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.

FAST Project

The FAST team conceived and designed a futuristic engine able to take you from Paris to Tokyo in less than two hours!

The TRINITY engine provides unprecedented travel times, flexibility, and reusability being competitive in today’s economy. It also complies with today’s environmental standards thanks to the use of liquid hydrogen as fuel.

6S CubeSat Project

Designing a CubeSat has always been one of the main focus of the association. After creating a team of BSc PoliMi students, the project of the PoliS pace CubeSat started getting shape.

Thanks to a partnership with Sidereus Space Dynamics, the PoliSpace Cubesat will actually take flight towards real space in the early months of 2023.

ICE CREAM Mission

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 Project

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.
