Our friends at KTH, Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Technology, launched their SQUID project into space this morning. The launch was a success and the team used their Snowfire website, squid-kth.se, as the main hub for linking together all their different social networks and live streams.
SQUID was born out of the wish for being able to carry out multi-point measurements of conditions in Earth's ionosphere. Such measurements are important for the understanding of the aurora, but also for the planning of space missions and satellite programmes.
