A new inspiration

I found this quite fascinating whilst watching the news earlier.

A team of amateur radio enthusiasts have launched a tiny satellite into space in an attempt to inspire our schoolchildren to become the scientists and engineers of the future.

The satellite, given the name Funcube, works by sending and receiving messages as it orbits the Earth. In the not too distant future, schools will be able to download data from it directly into the classroom.
