K2 Tuesdays is a semi-regular series on the development of KySat-2, the latest spacecraft from Kentucky Space. Prior installments are here, here, here, here and here.
The KySat-2 project has now shifted from pure design to receiving parts and sub system testing. This is an exciting time because the design we’ve been developing for months is taking shape. This week we’ve already received flight radios, batteries and some components that we had printed, which I’ll expand on in the next "K2 Tuesday." But for today I wanted to debut the KySat-2 mission patch. This was put tougher by a team working with Kentucky Space. A special thanks has to go to Michael Combs at Morehead State University and Chris Mitchell at the University of Kentucky who helped design and layout the mission patch.
