Want a cheap, easy to deploy satellite for a futuristic game? Get a Cubesat!
For only about $80,000, universities across the globe are building and launching these small satellites, measuring about 1 litre (10 cm cube), from off-the-shelf electronics components.
Building these devices allows scientists to test a variety of space and technology projects. Part of the price includes adding the Cubesat to the Poly-PicoSatellite Orbital Deployer (P-POD) and launching it into space.
