Description of the Cansat mission:

The team will collect and transmit GPS-determined position data to create a live visualisation of their CanSat. They will also measure the amount of energy generated by a turbine mounted in the parachute's canopy and determine the intensity of atmospheric light dispersion. With the power recovery system they aim to prove that kinetic energy of a satellite can be partially reused. They believe that this solution, after further testing and development, could be applied in real missions. By determining the intensity of atmospheric dispersion they wish to further investigate potential optical illusions that could disturb flight instruments. The team will try to make the analysing the mission results easier by visualising live visualisation the probe's position.
