A planetary atmospheric entry vehicle designed and built by 11 engineering students of SRM University won a second prize in a competition – CANSAT – organized by The American Astronautical Society (AAS), American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and sponsored by NASA. The satellite with a deployable lander designed by the students met all parameters set by the organizers and made a safe and precise landing without damaging a raw egg kept inside.

This is the fourth annual competitions supported by NASA, which is interested to find technology from world over to build an entry vehicle which will safely land a rover or a satellite on the surface of a planet without damaging senors or antennas and other components.
