BeaverCube

BeaverCube 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.

Its science payload will measure cloud properties, ocean surface temperatures and ocean color to study Earth’s climate and weather systems. BeaverCube also will demonstrate an application for the use of shape memory alloy technology via on-orbit calibration.

It was selected in 2019 by NASA to be launched as part of the ELaNa program.
