The Argentine educational satellite Pehuensat-1 is the result of more than five years of work by professors and students of the Department of Engineering of the National University of Comahue, the Argentine Association of Space Technology (AATE), and AMSAT Argentina. In October 2006, the 6-kilogram satellite was taken to the Sriharikota, India Launch Center by AATE and Comahue University staff. After final safety and functional tests, the satellite was placed in the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) C-7 launcher. A team of 17 teachers and 44 students from the University of Comahue, together with AATE staff worked at Pehuensat-1, which among other objectives aims to educate space technology in Argentina. Pehuensat-1 is still in orbit but is no longer operational.
