Swedish-Finnish collaboration sends satellite to space

A collaboration between Swedish and Finnish universities and research institutes will result in a nanosatellite, KvarkenSat, eventually being launched into orbit around the Earth. The satellite is built by researchers at Luleå University of Technology and will provide various actors with space data. – Through this project, we hope to establish a procedure that helps us creating new missions with less effort and resources, and gain momentum in the creation of nanosatellite missions. This mission has potential to improve our research in system engineering and attitude dynamics, says Chris Nieto, postdoctoral researcher in Space Systems at Luleå University of Technology.
