Taiwan has established a connection with one of its recently launched satellites.

Taiwan's CubeSats, named "Flying Squirrel" and "Yu-shan", flew into space aboard SpaceX's Falcon-9 Rocket, which launched from the U.S. state of Florida on Sunday night US time.

Taiwan had failed to establish connection with the satellites on Monday and Tuesday.

But the signal from "Flying Squirrel" was received today by a station in Taoyuan and was subsequently sent to the National Central University for deciphering.

Meanwhile, connection with "Yu-shan" has yet to be established.
