Science contest Star Track, initiated by Max Polyakov, reveals  new space genius”

Over the past several years, Dnipro gained recognition as a birthplace of innovative new ideas in Ukraine. This has been possible because of the many social and scientific activities that were placed in this region recently. Association Noosphere and its leader  Max Polyakov  initiated numerous events for the young generation in order to elevate Ukrainian science to the international level. Thus, students, idea-owners and young startups had another chance this winter to demonstrate their technological groundwork to make our lives better. 

The Star Track competition is a brainchild of the Oles Honchar Dnipro National University and  Noosphere Engineering School . According to Max Polyakov, mastermind of the event, the main idea of this tournament is to create a platform where everybody can freely share their unique developments and make their own contributions to the space exploration sphere. 

7 teams with 28 participants put a lot of effort into presenting their projects and prototypes which can be used in the modern  aviation industry . Moreover, the event, supported by Max Polyakov, opened up an opportunity to the winners of the tournament not only win the prize of 5000 Ukrainian hryvnias but also to test their inventions on the field and demonstrate them by April 12, 2018. 

According to the rules, set up by organizers and  Max Polyakov , all participants of the tournament could submit their project applications in one of three categories: 

     CanSat - a launch vehicle project to create and deploy CanSat microsatellites.

     Advanced Rocket Systems -  a launch vehicle project to an observation of the upper atmosphere.

     Open topics - a category for those who have an original idea with no limits on project parameters. 

As CanSat nomination winners were chosen, DniproSkyLab and UniversalRocket. These teams had contributed to creating the Ukrainian segment of the international CanSat project based on their own launch vehicles. Examples of similar  projects  include ARLISS, NASA Student Launch from the USA, as well as the European CanSat Competition. CLASNARocket and RochettaSpaceVehicle Teams had won at the Advanced Rocket Systems nomination. And, the winner of the Open topics nomination was DH Team with their project "Dron-Hunter I" that can be used to defend national borders. 

Max Polyakov  admitted that such events and increasing interest in them among the next generation encourages him to continue these activities in Ukraine. He believes that our country has great potential to build a unique and competitive ecosystem for startups in the field of space exploration, as well as to revive the Ukrainian aerospace industry.
