This year, we – Catrina, Sophie, Michael, Nikolai, Raphael, Lucian and David – want to take part in a new competition, the CanSat in Bremen.
To do this, we have to build a mini satellite the size of a beverage can, which then has to complete two missions. The first mission will be the same for all 10 teams. We are supposed to measure the air pressure and the temperature. The height and the fall speed have to be determined from this data. A temperature profile has to be created from the measured temperature.
The idea we have for the second mission is the determination of water sources based on a thermographic profile with the help of infrared measurements.
