Pupils from Cockermouth School in Cumbria are launching another recording device into space this morning.

A one metre wide sink hole has been discovered near the coastal path at Harrington in west Cumbria.
It is close to the local children's play area and has been cordoned off for safety reasons.
The police are concerned that the hole may be bigger than it appears from the surface and are asking people to stay away.
A new facility to help businesses and groups in West Cumbria develop design ideas has opened in Cockermouth.
The idea is that community groups, businesses, individual entrepreneurs and inventors can use the Fab Lab to design new products on digital programmes and have them created on site.
The sorts of things that can be developed are interior design products or anything that can be used as a prototype for engineering projects.
Designers based at the Fab Lab can help people make their products.
The only thing that the person has to pay for is the materials used in the products themselves.
The facility is funded through the Britain's Energy Coast economic development organisation which is an initiative that helps businesses in West Cumbria.
The council hopes the development will encourage social landlords and private developers to build similar schemes.
Building work on the new home would begin next year and be completed in 2016.
A new respite centre could also be created to replace Cavendish House, which cares for adults with learning disabilities. The building is around 50 years old and badly in need of replacement.
Any changes would be subject to consultation with service users and families.
The extra-care housing is to include 40 apartments with one or two bedrooms enabling couples to stay together, something currently not available in the town. The homes would be designed to support people living with dementia and include 24 hour on-site care and support staff.
The centre, which will be open every weekday aims to provide a range of facilities for local businesses. It offers drop in sessions for information and support, grants and training, and the use of meeting rooms.
