Whew! Last week, Kentucky Space and its partner Space Tango held the first of two PocketQube workshops at NASA Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley.
It was a huge success!
We had over 40 attendees representing five countries for the one day workshop, which covered the history of satellite miniaturization as well as how to design such a small spacecraft from top to bottom - power, communications systems, software, and so on. The workshop included talks by Morehead State University's Dr. Benjamin Malphrus and Professor Bob Twiggs, Garrett Jernigan, the PI of one of the first PokectQubes launched back in November, and featured remarks from NASA Ames Director Pete Worden.
The second PocketQube workshop is planned for May 14th at the Radisson Resort at the Port convention center in Port Canaveral, Florida. We hope to see you there!
