All ready for the launch of EIRSAT-1 – Ireland’s first ever satellite to go to space 🛰️ #shorts


Have you ever dreamt of flying your own satellite?

A team of university students from @universitycollegedublin have done just that!

Meet EIRSAT-1, the Educational Irish Research Satellite, Ireland’s first ever satellite to go to space.

The journey wasn’t easy, but over six years, the students worked with our experts and in our state-of-the-art labs as part of our Academy’s Fly Your Satellite! programme to overcome challenges. They even set up their own clean room and mission control at the University.

EIRSAT-1 is scheduled to launch at the end of November. Stay tuned to learn more about Ireland’s historic space moment!
