A decade of CanSat

College students holding their CanSat at the 2016 CanSat launch campaign

Launched in 2010, the CanSat university venture issues pupils to in good shape all the big subsystems located in a satellite, such as electric power, sensors, and a communication system, into the quantity and shape of a delicate beverages can. The CanSat is then introduced by a rocket up to an altitude of somewhere around one particular kilometre, or dropped from a platform, drone, or captive balloon. Then its mission starts. This will involve carrying out a scientific experiment and/or a technologies demonstration, attaining a harmless landing, and analysing the data gathered. 

The task has grown from a couple collaborating groups across Europe in 2010 to more than 1500+ college students taking part annually from ESA Member and Affiliate States!
