TODAY is a very special day for Julián Fernández, a 16 year old Spaniard who this Friday is going to see one of his creations travel into space.

The device will be launched into Space this morning (Friday) from New Zealand and is installed with software capable of supporting an international communications network accessible to everyone for free.

Julian Fernandez and his team will follow the launch from the European Space Agency facility in Madrid – Spain.

The launch comes just one day after the Space Agency in the Spanish capital approved the largest budget in its history with the ultimate goal of reaching the Moon and Mars.

The announcement together with today’s launch highlights that aerospace engineering has a lot of future – and present – in Spain.

Julián Fernández, was interviewed by Jaime Cantizano on Onda Cero and revealed that despite his youth, he has already lectured at the European Space Agency and dreams of touching the sky, the sky he has always admired since he was a child.
