As part of our constant search for new talent to add to our teams, we continually encounter exciting projects and clubs through which students are already making a decisive contribution to the future development of their sector. The best example of this is the student-run Small Satellite Society of the University of Stuttgart, known as KSat (Kleinsatellitengruppe) which will be sending an experiment to test a ferrofluid pump on the ISS with the help of DLR, the German Space Agency.
