MAST is designed to perform investigations of the dynamics of tethered formations of spacecraft and to investigate the survivability of tethers in the harsh space environment. The MAST experiment consists of three picosatellites which will ride into orbit as a secondary payload on a Dnepr rocket as a part of the University CubeSat program. For launch, these three picosatellites stack together into a volume about the size of a loaf of bread. Once on orbit, the picosatellites will separate and deploy a 1,000 meter long Hoytether structure.
