RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - NASA tested in a suborbital flight (maximum altitude of 100 kilometers) devices created by Mexican researchers that are key to constructing a type of nanosatellite, informed UNAM on Monday.
Members of the academic community from both the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN) participated in creating components together with national and international institutions for this second test, the university said in a bulletin.
The flight took place on June 8 to study the ionosphere, which is the layer of the Earth's atmosphere between 80 and 500 kilometers above sea . . .
