PocketQube

Fraser Noble Building, University of Aberdeen FN1

A start-up company based in Glasgow, Scotland, PocketQube shop (Alba Orbital Ltd) wants to get more people building and launching their own satellites. They provide a hub for the fledgling class of PocketQube satellites. PocketQubes are 5cm cubed spacecraft, which cost roughly the same as a car to build and launch. The first 4 PocketQubes made orbit on the 21st of November 2013.

This event will also cover the democratisation of small satellite technology. Come along and get a glimpse as to how you could build your own satellite!!

Presented by: Tom Walkinshaw, Founder of PocketQube
