University of Kentucky to Launch CubeSat

University of Kentucky engineering students have been preparing a ‘**_[CubeSat][1]_**’ for launch into orbit in February 2011.

_“**[KYSat-1][2]** will travel to California Polytechnic State University on Monday to be integrated into a standardized satellite launcher and to undergo final flight qualification vibration testing,”_ according to electrical and computer engineering Professor Dr. James Lumpp. _“From there it will travel to **[Vandenberg Air Force Base][3]** where it will be integrated onto a _[_**Taurus-XL rocket** _][4]_for a Feb. 22, 2011 launch.”_

_“The satellite, **[Kentucky Satellite-1][5]**, is the first free-flying, orbital satellite the lab has developed and is the result of a state-wide collaboration among Kentucky universities, coordinated by the **[Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation][6]**, a non-profit corporation focused on high-technology and innovation in Kentucky,”_ Lumpp said.
