BeaverCube 2

BeaverCube [MIT]

BeaverCube 2 is an educational mission led by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to introduce high school students, nationwide, to aerospace science and technology through designing a 3U CubeSat.

BeaverCube 2 is an education mission that will teach high school students aerospace science by having them design a CubeSat. It will host one visible and two infrared imagers to measure cloud properties, ocean surface temperatures and ocean color to study the Earth’s climate and weather systems. It also will demonstrate an application for the use of shape memory alloy technology via an on-orbit calibration technique.

It was selected in 2020 by NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) to be launched as part of the ELaNa program.
