Applause at Hasselt University this morning after the launch of one of Elon Musk's SpaceX rockets.  The rocket is also carrying the world’s first crystal quantum magnetometer.  This equipment will be used in the International Space Station to map out the magnetic field around the world.  The magnetometer is wholly developed by students at Hasselt University.
