I was interviewed by Rough Scientist Mike Bullivant for two OU BLAST! podcasts about the SCHOME project.  Within SCHOME I supervised an entry by participants into a national competition by the British National Space Centre (BNSC) and Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) to design a satellite instrument.  The winning entry would be built and launched.  The SCHOME students, despite their geographical separation, produced a strong competition entry and were finalists in this national competition.
