LuxCube is the first CubeSat satellite student project to be developed at the University of Luxembourg. The project will be officially launched during a conference which will take place on Thursday 20 September, featuring speakers from the aerospace industry.
Having primarily an educational objective, LuxCube project aims to provide hands-on satellite-building experience to students. They will learn to design, build, test, and operate space hardware. LuxCube design complies with one unit CubeSat standards of 10x10x10cm in size and a maximum weight of 1.33kg. LuxCube secondary mission objective is to image the Earth’s surface, particularly Luxembourg, and to evaluate the flight data collected from the subsystems for future CubeSat’s designs.
