Thanks to the Slovak Organization of Space Activities (SOSA), Observatory in Valasske Mezirici, Observatory in Partizanske and a lot of enthusiasts around, in the frame of the „Commonly to the Stratosphere“ initiative funded from the EU Microprojects, the CzechTechSat team was able to let the CubeSat on the trip up to the sky, close to the Space.

The telemetry from the 3 hours-long flight was monitored via mobile groundstation. The onboard antenna deployment test passed successfully at 28.2 km / 92.5k ft up above our heads and the transceiver started to receive the signal from the Earth. Full flight video including the sound of the First CubeSat ever captured on camera aboard stratospheric balloon can be found at the project’s YouTube Channel
