Eight tiny satellites built by Israeli students were launched into space a short time ago aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that lifted off from Cape Canaveral in Florida.

Eight teams from junior high schools across the country took part in the effort in collaboration with the Israel Space Agency and the Science and Technology Ministry

The satellites will fulfill various tasks and experiments and control of them will be possible through communication stations in several locations in Israel.
