Ex-Alta 1 – Alberta’s First Satellite

AlbertaSat is currently building the Experimental Albertan #1 (Ex-Alta 1) Satellite as a part of the QB50 consortium mission and the Canadian Satellite Design Challenge (CSDC). Along with 49 other cube satellites in the QB50 mission, Ex-Alta 1’s purpose will be to measure patterns of space weather on a completely new scale of science. More importantly, Ex-Alta 1 represents an opportunity for the University of Alberta and the rest of the province to demonstrate a capability for space technology and betterment of humankind on a global stage.
