The ‘Flying-Laptop’ Satellite’s on-board Technology

Barry Cook

I’ll describe what the satellite is intended to achieve and walk-through the systems on-board to make this possible. We’ll see what the final-build looks like and a few pictures of the final stages before, and including, launch. Digging a little deeper, we’ll see just how much on-board support is needed for a successful mission and take a very brief look at a couple of central components. Some of the less obvious environmental threats to continued operation in orbit will be described – and how they are made safe.

January 2018 – Social

Unfortunately, our regular venue, The Apothecary closed down without warning. We postponed January’s lineup to give us time to secure a new venue. Instead we held a small social at The Picture House. Food, drink and a chat.

Our apologies for the blip in usual service. Thanks to everyone for their words of support and offers to host us!

We have secured a venue for February. We hope to see you there next month!
