USask CubeSat officially deployed into space


The University of Saskatchewan’s satellite project was officially launched into outer space late last week. The RADSAT-SK CubeSat, a miniaturized satellite, will be used for experiments related to space radiation. “It’s kind of unreal,” said Dustin Preece, a student who worked on the project as the technical manager. “Just to see the thermal tape on there, glimmer in the sun every once in a while. That was really cool.” The satellite was developed as part of the Canadian CubeSat Project.
