Stratosphere Probe rose to 35 km high.
From the Malé Bielice airport this morning Magion 1S took nine hours. It was a historic passage that reminded of the first Czechoslovak satellite that was only recently celebrated its 40th anniversary.
Magion 1 arrived on the track on October 24, 1978 and was researching low-frequency electromagnetic phenomena in the field of the magnetosphere and the ionosphere from which it came from.

The satellite was 30 × 30 × 15 cm, not exceeding 15 kg. Learn more about this in our memoir.
It was not just on the edge
The Magion 1S probe is a laugh that copies the size and appearance of the original Magion 1. Meteorological balloon climbed into the stratosphere, the highest 34.5 km above the surface.
During the flight, which only spent two hours, the probe was transmitted by telemetry. Magion's signal can grab the public or keep track of it over the Internet.
Take a moment to start the Magion 1S:
On the Magion 1S "table," organizers can use non-specified components – both hardware and software – to build the so-called CubeSatov. The probe shall also be fitted with an aircraft which records the aircraft communication.
Another "cost" was an attempt by Púchov primary school student, namely the NSAT module to acquire the basic amount of aerologous. Interestingly, the probes also created seeds of plants that were subsequently implanted by students and compared crops that were not subject to stratospheric conditions.
The VUT Brno students first developed the flight path forecasting software for the Magione 1S test.
The public may have a reminder if you send any links on the web. All the messages were then placed on a memory card that was part of the flight.
They have bigger plans
The event was organized by the Brno Observatory and Planetarium, the Prague Planetarium and the Slovak Space Research Association (SOSA) behind the project the first Slovak skCube satellite.
Just remember SOSA a few days ago announced that he was planning another building, this time the Czechoslovak satellite csCube.
