USask Students Contribute To A Satellite

More than 100 University of Saskatchewan students have worked over the course of the last three years on creating the province’s first cube satellite. Project manager Dustin Preece says the plan was to launch the satellite in December of 2022, but that’s been pushed up to August. While the satellite is in space for its one-year voyage, the RADSAT-SK unit will use a new kind of radiation sensor and test an experimental radiation blocking compound.
