• Question: Why did you chose your favourite project as a radiation moniter, as geiger counters can be found in many places, including schools?

      This is true, there are lots of geiger counters about. But not that many that work in space.

      Space also has considerably more radiation than here on earth, and it is far more dangerous than the background radiation we experience.

      So designing something we take for granted here on Earth to work in space is very challenging, that is why it is my favourite.
