September GOSH Community Call: Featuring a presentation on OreSat

Hello everyone,

The next GOSH Community Call is happening on September 26 at 20:00 UTC! Join us for a presentation on OreSat, a fully open source, modular, and scalable CubeSat “bus” aimed at interdisciplinary student teams.

Register for the call in advance here.

Want to know more about the community calls? You can read more about them here . The calls are also available on the GOSH community calendar .

More information on the presentation:
OreSat is a fully open source, modular, and scalable CubeSat “bus” aimed at interdisciplinary student teams. Its well defined card-cage system allows teams, whether they are engineering or science systems, to work independently of each other. OreSat has one open source science instrument, a short wave IR camera used to detect high altitude cirrus clouds. OreSat0, 1 U CubeSat and Oregon’s first satellite, is currently in a sun-synchronous low earth orbit. We’re getting ready for our next mission to fly in February 2023.

Look forward to seeing some of you there!

:point_up: IMO the OreSat project is a great example of successful open science hardware from design to manufacturing to deployment (in space!) and growing a community. Even if you are not into space or space technologies, I think there’s something to learn, and I encourage everyone to attend this Community Call!! :rocket:

Full disclosure: I originally suggested them as a Community Call presenter…
