Young Scientists to Create Satellite Twice Bigger than Rubic's Cube

A spacecraft, which can be held in hands, will be constructed by students and young scientists of the Siberian State Space University in Krasnoyarsk.

      Its size will be just twice bigger than the Rubic's Cube.

      "Such devices of the CubeSAT class weighing from one to 10 kilograms are very convenient for testing new technologies in the space industry. Their light weight and small size give advantage in the low launching cost, small financial expenses and development time as compared to heavy spacecrafts", - Dmitry Zuyev, the undergraduate of the Siberian State Space University said today.

      Presently the basic prototype of the satellite is being constructed. The platform and viability of the developments will be tested on it: the onboard control system using system-on-crystal processors, network interaction of the onboard equipment and anti-radiation multilayered screens.

      The first SibCube satellite will be launched into orbit in autumn of 2016.
