ESTCUBE 1
Description

1U cubesat from Estonia that will deploy a 10m long tether and measure/study effects on it of the solar wind with a view to future use as a solar sail. While emphasis was placed on educating students during creation of ESTCube-1, it does have a scientific purpose. On board the satellite is an electric solar wind sail (e-sail) which was invented by Finnish scientist Pekka Janhunen.
