For our competition, it is required that our CanSat transmits the data of the primary mission to our ground station by radio at least once per second and that it can reach a range of 1500 metres. Since last week, we have been researching suitable radio modules and compatible antennas. Due to school stress, as well as two cases of illness in our team last week, we are not making as much progress as we would like to make. However, all of us have been well since this week, so we are confident that we will be able to return to our previous levels of performance once we have overcome the challenges that school bestows upon us.
PS: James, our lovely mascot, was sketched out by our team leader Emilie below this blog post.
