A team of amateur radio enthusiasts has launched a tiny satellite into space.

The Funcube satellite sends and receives messages as it orbits the earth.

Schools will soon be able to download data from it directly into the classroom.

The project aims to inspire schoolchildren to become the scientists and engineers in the future.
