An experimental package developed by Shrewsbury School pupils is part of the UK-DMC2 should have been launched earlier this evening.
The pupils experiment aims to measure variations in the ionosphere, which can affect the accuracy and safety of satellite navigation systems, and might also help to provide indications of impending earthquakes
It good to see schools getting actively involved in space experiments.
