Waseda-SAT 0 [JAXA]
Waseda-SAT 0 is a 1U Cubesat developed by Waseda University as a technology demonstrator for 3D-printed satellites.
Its aim is to have zero fixing screws, zero mechanical parts to be assembled together, and zero debris. This is achieved by 3D-printing the entire chassis as a single element.
It will be used to conduct experiments regarding deployment of membrane surfaces which might be used as solar panels for power generation or solar sail for propulsion. The total mass of the satellite is 1.2 kg.
It was launched in October 2022 on an shared Epsilon (2) CLPS rocket but failed to reach orbit.
