Canadian CubeSat Project: ready for launch
2022-11-10 – The Canadian CubeSat Project is providing professors in post-secondary institutions with an opportunity to engage their students in a real space mission. Through this national initiative, winning teams of professors and students are offered the unique opportunity to design and build their own miniature satellite called a CubeSat, that will be launched into space. Two teams, Dalhousie University (LORIS) and University of Victoria (ORCASat), are now ready for the launch of their CubeSat.

Canadian Space Agency: I feel so anxious that I can’t imagine how the students feel.
LORIS (Dalhousie Unviersity): It’s pretty incredible thinking that we started from scratch and now it’s evolved into this.
ORCASat (University of Victoria): I feel good now. As soon as we put it in the deployer, I felt very nervous and a little tired, but now I feel pretty good, so yeah, I’m happy and excited.
