We have won silver , thanks to: , Rotary Club Berlin-Schloss Köpenick, , , ,

So second place in this year's European CanSat competition in the advanced category in Portugal.... Considering that our CanSat was destroyed after four seconds of flight and we only had four seconds of data to analyze, I am pretty proud of this achievement. I saw a lot of other CanSats and am amazed that the jury voted for us. But of course this only worked because of the great team: spaceclub_Berlin! We rocked the contest and now can be pretty happy about this!
Furthermore, congratulations to the UK team that did a marvelous job and won the first prize. We would like to thank those who made this possible: the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), the German CanSat Competition, the European Space Agency (ESA), the
Rotary Club Berlin-Schloss Köpenick, the Technical University of Berlin and last but not least, the Freizeit- und Erholungszentrum (FEZ)!
