Danish ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen announces the team names and affiliations of the finalists invited to ESTEC in December 2015 to compete in the final of the iriss Space Robotics Competition. The competition which opened in January, challenged school students to design a robot that can move cargo from one end of the International Space Station (ISS) mock-up to another. Three teams of finalists were selected in each of the three age categories: 11-13, 14-16 and 17-19. In December, the finalists will be invited to attend a grand finale event at ESA’s European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, The Netherlands. Andreas will be there the whole time, mingling with the students and answering their questions about his time in space. At the end of the competition, he will present the prizes to the winners.
