BIS KickSat Technical Project to be revived

BIS programmed “Femtosats” to be launched into orbit – the BIS KickSat technical project is about to be revived (at least two BIS members originally programmed a couple of the ‘Sprites’), as KickSat-2 is due to be launched 17th November.

“Launch will be in late November, but actual deployment from ISS won’t be until some time in February, so plenty of time to get ground stations ready etc. I’ve been super busy getting the hardware ready, but once we’ve handed that off I’ll make a push to get all of the documentation and ground station stuff. updated.” (Zac Manchester.)
