International Students Testimonials


Jose Marsal, Portugal

Samara National Research University

In Russia I found out more about satellites

I am a doctoral student at Lisbon University, and the field of my research is the algorithms for receivers of the global navigation communication system. I came to the Summer Space School in Samara because I work with satellite navigation, but I only deal with the level of Earth-based receivers, so I wanted to find out more about satellites themselves.

Samara State Aerospace University is a good place to study satellites. The tutors here are highly professional, and it was interesting for me to work with them. Perhaps we will cooperate in the future. I obtained unique knowledge relating to the development of a nanosatellite project and its mission.

I was surprised to see Samara! The city is only slightly smaller than my native Lisbon. I want to come here three years later to the Football World Cup and see how Samara will have changed.
