Serenity [TIS]

The Serenity is developed by Teachers in Space is 3U CubeSat that will provide low cost opportunities to test educational experiments in space.

Teachers in space has previously guided high schools and other academic institutions in developing and flying experiments suborbitally with high altitude balloons, stratospheric gliders and rockets. This will be the first orbital satellite mission for TIS.

The Serenity satellite will be carrying a suite of data sensors and a camera that will be sending data back to Earth through the use of HAM radio signals. There will be several ground stations connecting with the satellite during its orbital period. These ground stations will be collecting data and pictures sent back down to Earth.

The satellite was one of the passengers on the maiden launch of the Firefly-Alpha rocket but was lost in the launch failure. A reflight was on the second Firefly-Alpha rocket and reached orbit, although lower than planned.
