"Secondary school students from Crescent College Comprehensive in Limerick today succeeded in achieving third place at the 2014 European CanSat Competition in Andya, Norway. Students from 14 countries across Europe participated in this unique European Space Agency (ESA) competition to build a CanSat - a simulation of a real satellite integrated within the volume of a soft drinks can which was then launched by rocket to a height of 1km."

Congratulations on the great achievement!
