Post First 3D Printed 6U CubeSat for NASA's CubeQuest Challenge   Posted on: Thu Mar 19, 2015 6:14 pm
Hey guys, I wanted to share our satellite bus design for NASA's CubeQuest Challenge-- a $5,000,000 competition for the first team to put a CubeSat into lunar orbit.

Small satellites haven't gone to the moon because there isn't enough space to fit everything inside a CubeSat. But because we're printing our satellite bus, we can do it with far less components (no fasteners, brackets, etc). That's giving us the advantage.

We're also controlling the hollow spaces inside our structure to make a propellant tank from any extra space we can find. Check us out!
