CubeSat Set to Monitor Ionosphere

Construction of NASA’s Dellingr CubeSat is complete, and the satellite now is ready for environmental testing. Named for the god of dawn in Norse mythology, Dellingr will study the ionosphere—the outer region of Earth’s atmosphere populated by charged particles ionized by incoming solar radiation and magnetospheric particle precipitation. Slightly larger than a cereal box, Dellingr

CubeSat Satellite Testing Takes Off at Mount Stromlo

Researchers from around Australia have begun testing satellites at the Mount Stromlo space testing facilities at The Australian National University (ANU) ahead of a mass satellite launch from the International Space Station later this year. Three CubeSats, satellites built from cubes about 10 centimetres per side, have been developed by researchers at ANU, the University
