The Mass of Jupiter - Sagrado Corazón de Jesús
19 students - 2nd Bachelor year

On the 17th of January a group of 19 students in their last year of  the Bachelor education, from the Sagrado Corazón de Jesús school, came to ESAC to be scientist for a day. The topic selected for their research was the study of the Mass of Jupiter.

Before coming to ESAC, they had watched a set of videos created by the CESAR Team, explaining what is the European Space Agency and achivements done on discovering the space. This activities are offered by the CESAR Team to the schools in Spain as a Space-Science Experience. 

Once the students watched the set of videos, with the support of their teachers, they scheduled a teleconference with the CESAR coordinator, Dr. Michel Breitfellner, on skype. During this half an hour session the students could ask all the questions about space that they had with themselves and those news that triggered by watching the videos.

On the 17th of January, the students could work hand-to-hand with the ESA scientist, as scientist, to identify the Mass of Jupiter from the data collected by Galileo about the Jupiter moons. After this investigation they followed the ESA engineers and learnt about the different space missions sent to space by the European Space Agency and how different they are depending on their scientific purposes.
