May 2017 - Applications of Satellite Technologies in the Mining Sector Workshop

The Satellite Applications Catapult together with the Cornwall Mining Alliance and Camborne School of Mines and GES hosted a full-day workshop on our beautiful site. Around 40 delegates from academia, the public sector and various industries in and around Cornwall enjoyed a series of engaging presentations and time for networking. The morning mist had cleared by the afternoon, just in time for a tour of our site to give the delegates the full picture of the operations out here on the Lizard.

For a week Goonhilly Earth Station hosted six enthusiastic and motivated Year 10 students from Penryn & Mullion (Cornwall), Five Islands (Isles of Scilly) and Colstons (Bristol) on a full programme of all things 'Space & Satellites'. With comments including 'There isn't a thing I would or could change to my experience as it was perfect and precise'; 'My work experience at GES has surpassed my expectations' and 'I wish I could spend much longer here', we are sure that Rory, Guy, Theo, Molly, Samuel & Jack enjoyed a stimulating week and invaluable experiences.
