galaSAT VI was launched from our High School last May 16, 2021. We couldn't share our project with classmates and families because of COVID19.
The launch was made from the playground of Antonio Gala High School at about 11.00 am and almost an hour and half later the payload landed close to San Sebastián de los Ballesteros. Because of some mistakes on APRS and LoRa comunication we couldn't find out our payload. Fortunately, a farmer (Mateo) who found the payload two days later phoned to tell us great news.
