 Introduction to CanSat
The concept of CanSat was proposed by Prof. Robert Twiggs (currently in Morehead State University) at the University Space Systems Symposium (USSS) held in Hawaii. The proposal was to fit the entire components of a satellite into a Soda can (of around 350ml) and launch it using a balloon to a height of hundreds of meters or kilo-meters.
