A group of students from the National Central University Advanced Rocket Research in Taiwan (Province of China) successfully built and launched with an APPL-7II rocket their own satellite, as SatNews reported.

The CanSat will report temperatures, record atmospheric pressure and transfer data. It will also be used for navigation purposes with GPS systems. The Space organization is cooperating with the university in order to teach students how to integrate systems in restricted space.
