Visit to Utah, the Small Satellite Conference

20-08-2009
In august 2009 four CubeSTAR students attended the Small Satellite Conference and the preceding CubeSat Conference at Utah State University, Logan.
Even though Small Satellites are defined up to 500 kg, far more than CubeSTAR’s 2 kg it’s still a lot to learn from those projects, lots of people and industry to meet and learn to know.  The preceding CubeSat conference was obviously more targeted against CubeSats  and student satellite projects.
It’s important for the CubeSTAR project that the participating students are given the opportunity to participate in relevant international conferences.
Participating students from the CubeSTAR projects was Martin Oredsson, Manuel Lains, Anders Aarsæther and Markus Grønstad.
