“Greek Minds @ Work”
Periklis really inspired and motivated the audience in White Minds 3. Feeling proud of being Greek, Periklis narrated the story of L-sat, the satellite created only by a Greek scientific team of young people led by him, which was launched from NASA facilities. “L-Sat” was designed and built by the Greek scientific team “Lamda Team” and the motto of the team is “Greek Minds at Work”.
The Greek scientists aimed to put Greece on the world map of Aerospace technology and emphasize that not only cutting-edge technology was used to build the satellite but also all the electronic systems were constructed from scratch, thus gaining an extremely valuable scientific knowledge for Greece.
Papadopoulos said that the Greek satellite was constructed for two purposes: to monitor all Greek merchant ships, and, secondly, for scientific purposes, more particularly for the first graphene test that will be conducted in space.
More importantly, there is a third reason behind, which has to do with the human factor. During the worst economic crisis, some Greeks have proved that they can do something extraordinary. Dedicating their time and effort without any payment, those young scientists made us proud and have proved that Greeks are capable of succeeding in demanding projects.
