KUbeSat Launch

NASA has opened an initiative for small satellites to be built by universities, high schools, and nonprofit organizations to fly on upcoming rocket launches. The CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) aims to have every state launch at least one satellite.

 

The University of Kansas is now competing in the CLSI program and aims to be the first in Kansas to successfully launch a satellite. The purpose of KU’s CubeSatellite group, called KUbeSat, is to create the infrastructure and opportunities for satellites to be built and launched through student-led projects. Building these satellites will serve the purpose of researching and testing scientific equipment affordably in space. This organization fosters leadership, communication, teamwork, and management skills for all involved members, thus contributing to educational and professional development.

 

Money raised from this project will be used to purchase, manufacture, and test the various components of the satellite and bring Kansas closer to space.

 

For anyone interested in joining us for a ride to space, names of donors with gifts of $500 and above will be engraved on the satellite!
