Hello. It’s Swimmer.
I saw the news that there was a lecture of which a camera and a sensor were attached to a can of drinking water, dropped it from the drone, and see if it works properly.
It seems this was a preparation for a high school student tournament, expected to be held in Fukui prefecture in November of this year, where they will compete for the performance of their own artificial satellites.
The gadgets were made with easily available materials, and the experiment site was the school playground. It became a challenge for them to think themselves and make efforts to get the results. It was very fun and interesting news.
Previously, satellites flying from town factories to space were talked about, but I hope that the dreams of young people who look to science that will lead to patented technology that enriches our lives will grow greatly.
