We are building a planetary probe that fits the size of a regular beverage can!

Our main goal is to determine, whether life can arise and be sustained on the planet our CanSat is deployed on. To achieve this we are going to measure or calculate multiple parameters of the planet and its atmosphere including but not limited to:

  • Mass, radius, density and escape velocity of the planet,
  • Density and approximated composition of the atmosphere,
  • Particle radiation

In addition to this our CanSat will transmit in real time all collected sensor data and video from onboard camera to the ground station, which will broadcast it on the Internet.

Having gathered all the data we might be able to answer the ultimate question: Are we alone in the universe?
