This paper is about the student part of REXUS II. Students at the Department of Space Science were invited to join a EUROLAUNCH rocket campaign. This was done with a short time of notice but we accepted the offer and have tried to do our best despite the lack of time. The attendees are spread over several programs at the Umea University, Lulea University of Technology and Upper Secondary Space School, Kiruna which has lead to some interesting and challenging problems for the project managers. The launch of the rocket, an improved Orion rocket, was a success. It was launched from SSC, Esrange at 21:53 local time the 28(th) of October 2004. All of the experiments didn't deliver the expected data or didn't even work but still the members of the experiment teams did learn a lot. So, despite the faults it was still a success if the participators someday use the gained knowledge and experience.
