Launching Open Hardware Satellites – Hackster’s Blog

Created almost twenty years ago the CubeSat standard has lowered the barrier to entry to the point where you can put your own satellite into orbit for not much more than the price of a high end car. The 10 cm × 10 cm × 10 cm cubes have become so common that you can buy most of the structural and flight components of your satellite straight off the shelf.

But what if you don’t want to build something with off the shelf parts?

The UPSat cubesat was constructed by the Libre Space Foundation, and aspired to the first completely open source satellite ever launched.
