This was the CanSat Competition 2017/18

Mini-satellites the size of a coke can, a rocket launch at the Austrian-German border and three teams of students from all over Austria, competing for the title as best CanSat team (and the participation in the European CanSat Competition from June 28, 2018, to July 1, 2018 in the Azores islands) - that's the first Austrian CanSat competition in a nutshell! CanSat is short for satellites (Sat) the size of a coke can (Can). The participating teams only had a few months at their disposal to build their very own mini-satellite, before they would have to show their skills at the big launch at the airfield Schärding-Suben in Austria. On its way back down to Earth, the small devices have to fulfill two seperate missions: Measuring the temperature and air pressure, as well as a secondary mission chosen by the teams themselves. The competition was organized by the European Space Education Research Office (ESERO) Austria, the educational office of the European Space Agency (ESA), which, in Austria, is located at the Ars Electronica Center.
