Here is just a few interesting facts and answers to questions you might want to know.
The satellite doesn't have a good name right now but hopefully if it ever goes up someone will get creative .
The desired orbit is a ??????????????orbit (north to south), 1000 feet above the earths surface.
It will take an hour and a half for it to complete one orbit. It will only be in orbit for thirty days which is a total of 480 orbits.
It requires solar panels 81 by 81 cm to produce the 52.36w it needs to operate.
It will weight between 90 and 150 kg.
It is one meter in diameter and shaped like an octagon.
It is stabilized by a gravity gradient boom which also functions as a directional antenna.
If the project goes through it will most likely be built right here at UNH.
