MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Marquette University students have received permission from NASA to send a small satellite into space, taking pictures of the planet Earth for nearly three months.

Researchers say the coffee mug-sized satellite, named the Golden Eagle 1, will be launched into low orbit around the Earth.

Dean of Marquette’s College of Engineering Bob Bishop says the project is aimed at applying scientific concepts to a real life situation, while solving technological challenges facing the world.
