Passengers of the first Ariane 6 launch ๐Ÿš€ #shorts


Europeโ€™s new rocket Ariane 6 is set to launch soon. ๐Ÿš€

On its first flight to space, Ariane 6 is offering a ride to miniature satellites, known as CubeSats.

ISTSat from Portugal, and ยณCat-4 from Spain, are two of Ariane 6โ€™s passengers.

Both satellites were developed by students participating in our Fly Your Satellite! programme, one of the several hands-on programmes for university students offered by ESA Education.

ISTSat is the first Portuguese CubeSat built by students. It will track aircraft from space using a smaller, lower power Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast system, which is the technology that enables websites like Flight Radar.

ยณCat-4 from the Technical University of Catalonia combines a radiometer, a reflectometer and an Automatic Identification System into one payload that will perform Earth Observation experiments.

The students visited Exolaunchโ€™s Berlin headquarters to perform the integration of their satellites, where they installed ISTSat-1 and ยณCat-4 into their deployer.
