MCUBED-2 is a miniaturized satellite built by students at the University of Michigan in joint project run by MXL and JPL . It is an example of the popular CubeSat design for amateur satellites. It was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in October 2011 atop a Delta II rocket. This was a multi-payload mission with five other CubeSats, AubieSat-1, DICE-1, DICE-2, Explorer-1 Prime, and RAX-2. The name 'M-Cubed' is a shortening of Michigan Multipurpose Minisat. M-Cubed uses a passive Attitude control system consisting of a large permanent magnet that aligns the satellite with the Earth's magnetic field.
