A Giant Leap for Alberta
AlbertaSat is a student team at the university of Alberta that has launched Alberta’s first satellite, The Experimental Albertan #1. Currently the team is conducting Orbital Operations on Ex-Alta 1 and is finishing its design for Ex-Alta 2. The team has many other initiatives including balloon missions and educational outreach.
Tyler Hrynyk is in his 5th year of Mechanical Engineering at the UofA. He has been a member of AlbertaSat since September 2013, overseeing the design, build, test, launch, and operation of Ex-Alta 1 and now the design of Ex-Alta 2. AlbertaSat has been an amazing educational experience and changed the trajectory of Tyler’s life. When not at school, Tyler can be found playing hockey with his brothers.
