For the fourth year, The Michaelis Foundation is collaborating with SEE (Simulation Exploration Experience). See is an international, student based, space exploration simulation initiative, applying commercial off the shelf (COTS) software tools to generate 3D models and simulations of space exploration activities. 14 Students teams from all over the world - from the US, Canada, Brazil, Bulgaria, Germany, Britain, France and Italy, others are cooperating in the virtual conquest of space.
The Simulation Exploration Experience (SEE) joins students, industry, professional associations, and faculty together for an annual modeling and simulation (M&S) challenge. SEE champions collaborative collegiate-level modeling and simulation by providing a venue for students to work in highly dispersed inter-university teams to design, develop, test, and execute simulated missions associated with space exploration. Participating teams gain valuable knowledge, skills, and increased employability by working closely with industry professionals, NASA, and faculty advisors.
This year, SEE will take place remotely and onsite in Brazil, April 25th-May 2nd for the performance by the SEE 2019 teams - representing 15 universities from 5 continents, across 11 time zones – of the simulated Space mission on both the Moon and Mars on which they collaborate. Participants include universities from Brazil, Bulgaria, Burkina-Faso, Germany, Italy, France, Pakistan, United Kingdom and USA. The workshop events will include the Review of the Experience of SEE on April 25-26th - both remotely and in Brazil, and will be held at FACENS University in the city of Sorocaba.
