Mr Karantonis from Hellas Sat Visits Our School for Advanced Science Presentation
On the 2nd of February, our school had the pleasure of welcoming Mr Karantonis from Hellas Sat to give a presentation to our science honours students on geostationary satellites.
The presentation was of an advanced level and was informative and engaging for all attendees.
During the presentation, Mr Karantonis elaborated on the transfer orbit and the launch phase of a geostationary satellite. He also discussed the voyage to the geostationary orbit and provided information about the various systems of a fully operational satellite. Students were able to learn about the importance of geostationary satellites and their role in communication and navigation.
Additionally, Mr Karantonis discussed the ground stations in Cyprus and Greece which support satellite missions. He provided fascinating insights into the inner workings of these stations and the crucial role they play in supporting satellite missions.
Our students were captivated by Mr Karantonis's presentation, and they had the opportunity to ask questions and gain a deeper understanding of the topic. We are grateful to Hellas Sat for providing such a unique and educational opportunity for our students.
As a result of the presentation, our students have developed a newfound appreciation for the work that goes into launching and operating geostationary satellites. We hope to visit the Cyprus ground station in the future and continue to learn more about this exciting field.
