Three New Brunswick post-secondary education institutions are partnering to create and send the province’s first cube satellite to space, as part of the Canadian Space Agency’s Canadian CubeSat Project.

The University of New Brunswick (UNB), Université de Moncton and New Brunswick Community College (NBCC), in a collaborative project referred to as CubeSat NB, aim to launch the cube satellite or cubesat, from the International Space Station in 2021.

As one of 15 teams participating, the CubeSat NB project will provide new insights into the behaviour of Earth’s ionosphere, part of the upper atmosphere.
