Conquest of the space spreads with small educational projects that aim to explore the capabilities and the potentials that the mankind have. This paper concludes our experiments that led to launching the second Can-Sat form Alexandria, Egypt under affiliation of Space and Technology Program in Bibliotecha Alexandrina. Here we presents our satellite system and the communication system that connects the ground station to the flying system, as well it represents the launching procedure, and some of the problems we overboard during our project duration.
