The ESA Instruction team is delighted to announce that the following teams from Hungary, Latvia, Slovenia and Switzerland have been selected to participate in the 2021 European CanSat Competitors:

PremSat, Hungary

The staff from Premontrei Szent Norbert Gimnázium aims to measure how the focus of poisonous parts of the air vary along the height of the environment. Dedication of the distribution of the airborne dust concentration in the environment is one more intention of this team’s mission.

LatSat, Latvia

The crew from Engineering Superior University of Riga Technological University ideas to review visible knowledge to rely objects in the region. If productive, these conclusions have the prospective to be utilized for land surveying, animal inhabitants monitoring or site visitors management functions.

Vegasat, Slovenia

The team from Elektrotehniško-računalniška strokovna šola in gimnazija Ljubljana needs to keep an eye on the growth of electron crystals in microgravity and evaluate this to electron crystal development on Earth. The staff will use a spectrometer to analyze and keep an eye on the expansion of electron crystals in microgravity. 

SWISSCAN, Switzerland

The team from Scuola D’Arti e Mestieri would like to increase on the principal mission of temperature and air stress measurements by also measuring air humidity and wind pace/course. They desire to chemically characterise the atmosphere by accumulating air samples for put up-flight examination. This method, if effective, will allow for them to study the “vertical profile” of the air high quality, a thing that is difficult to reach with floor-primarily based stations.

Rocket recovery

These four teams will participate together with the winners from ESA Member States that have a National Competition as nicely as Malta who are guest rivals. The European CanSat Competitiveness will be held practically in June 2021.

Every single of the teams will devote the months top up to the European CanSat start campaign creating and testing their CanSat and refining all their excellent scientific ideas. ESA Schooling has a collection of classroom resources available to aid the CanSat groups throughout the levels of competition. 

The spot of the 2021 European CanSat Level of competition and much more aspects about the construction of the campaign and how it will run will be introduced in the coming months.
