SelfieSat [Orbit NTNU]
The Norvegian SelfieSat is a 2 unit CubeSat misssion built Orbit NTNU, a volunteer student organization educating future space engineers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
The purpose of the satellite is to display a selfie of any person on earth, which will be uploaded from the ground station at NTNU. The external LCD-display displays pictures sent in by the public. A camera mounted on a measuring tape arm photographs the screen with the Earth in the background. The space-selfie will be sent back to Earth. Through SelfieSat, Orbit will gain unique experience in building satellites and launching them to space.
SelfieSat is equipped with 5 cameras; one selfie-camera, two on the sides (x- and y-) and one one the antennas-side.
The satellite was launched in 2022 by a Falcon-9 v1.2 (Block 5) rocket on the Transporter-5 rideshare mission onboard of the Vigoride 3 space tug to be deployed later on orbit. It was deployed at the endof August 2022.
