This was announced this week, 31.1.24/XNUMX/XNUMX, at the Rona Ramon space education conference held as part of Israeli Space Week
A few days ago, the TAU-SAT3 satellite was launched on SpaceX's Falcon 9 launcher, designed to demonstrate optical and quantum communication from space using tiny satellites
The center will make available to entrepreneurs, companies and researchers the infrastructure for the development of small satellites and their components, and will enable the expansion of the ecosystem in the field
It's too late for Umuamoa, but we can be ready for the next strange interstellar visitor if we want to. It is possible to design and build a spacecraft that will encounter such an object at short notice
Tel Aviv University launched a "smart material" into space - a folded polymer that unfolds to its original shape when heated
The satellite was received strongly and clearly by 4 ground stations in Israel connected by a network between them: at Tel Aviv University, at the Science Center in Herzliya, at the Negev Gate and in Biruchem. In the coming days, it will be rerouted to its fixed orbit
The satellite will be launched packed inside a Northrop Grumman Cygnus model supply spacecraft. Northrop Grumman's Cygnus will be launched on Saturday, 19:36 p.m. Israel time. The launch will then take place at the Atlantic Regional Space Center on Wallops Island in Virginia.
As part of the cooperation, a mission receiver and a satellite computer were developed for the Adelis-Samson project. In this project, three nanosatellites will be launched that will be transported in space in an autonomous manned flight
