[Title]: Congratulations to Space Concordia

A CubeSat. A microsatellite, size of a shoebox 10 centimeters wide and 30 centimeters long, weighing under four kilograms. Simple and sturdy, made of aluminum, with spring steel for antenna. Yet, Concordia’s design proved to be most advanced and most mature. Its small format allows low-cost access to space, since it can be launched along with other loads on a rocket. It will orbit between 600 to 800 kilometers above Earth and will last at least a year. It will focus on the South Atlantic Anomaly, an area which is dangerous for the airplanes and causes electronic equipment to malfunction.

Congratulations to students, professors and staff, who won the first prize and contributed to this achievement!
