The 509 pages of the final paper submitted to the ESA was based on a theoretical study and extensive experiments and tests while enlisted in the 6th place of the competition.The μικροδορυφόρος of the Greek team that was the most complicated of the competition, since he managed to fit 18 different sensors in the minimum volume of a box of soda, was the most πολυφωτογραφημένος so by the official photographer of the ESA and from the other groups, while the parachute and the antenna constructed by the students impressed us with their excellent performance.Unfortunately, a series of misfortunes during the initial test castings from small aircraft created problems in the electronic parts of the μικροδορυφόρου that construction far exceeded even these very high requirements of the ESA and thus participated heavily wounded in the final phase of the competition and managed to collect all the required data.
