Educational space systems engineering and camera to image nightglow phenomena.
The main objective is educational and to show the students how to build a complex engineering system from A to Z like a satellite. Carries a small telescope which will allow to obtain images of the nightglow, a luminescence phenomena occurring at 100 km of height above the Earth surface.
Since the nightglow takes place in a very limited region in the high layer of the atmosphere and at well-know locations, it might be possible from the measurements to retrieve the direction towards the centre of the Earth and therefore enabling the design of a new generation of Earth sensor.
