CubeCats satellite is a go for launch

CubeCats satellite is a go for launch NASA will launch a satellite produced by CubeCats — a student aerospace organization at the University of Cincinnati — as early as next year, the agency announced March 2. LEOPARDSat-1 — the Low Earth Orbit Platform for Aerospace Research and Development — is a small research satellite, or “CubeSat,” developed by the CubeCats organization. The mission will “teach in-depth space mission and systems engineering to undergraduate and high school students,” according to the NASA website. The LEOPARD satellite studies radiation mitigation. It should help NASA and aerospace researchers develop space suits and instruments that can withstand massive amounts of radiation, in hopes of one day enabling humans to travel to Mars.   More
