|Swiss Satellite In Space|
22 September 2009
Switzerland’s first satellite, named SwissCube, will travel on ISRO’s PSLV (C14 mission) from Satish Dhawan Center near Chennai. The picosatellite (10x10x10 cm3, 1 kg) was developed at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland in collaboration with several other swiss engineering schools, universities and private industry; the University of Neuchâtel and five universities of applied sciences in Switzerland. RUAG Space provided extensive support to the students during the construction of the satellite. About 200 students participated in the elaboration, fabrication and tests of the satellite.
