What are we?
Conex stands for Conceptual Exploration and is an online designathon series, started in April 2020. The goal is to produce mission proposals for different space related topics.
We operate four specialised teams, working together to research and design missions:
- Spacecraft design
- Instrument placement
- Shielding temperature, asteroids, radiation
- Laws of mechanics
- Payload, instruments
- Data handling and communications
- Propulsion systems
- Power generation
- Mission statement and science goals
- Planetary science
- Astrophysics, astrodynamics, astronomy
- Orbit design
- Mission profile and timeline of travel
- Launch / launch vehicles / deployment
- Cost and risks
- Sponsoring and funding
