Arizona Technology and Innovation: ASU CubeSat Mission
Sept. 10, 2015
Arizona State University has been selected by NASA to design, build and operate a CubeSat mission. Cubesats are tiny satellites about the size of a shoe box. ASU will work on the Lunar Polar Hydrogen Mapper, or “LunaH-Map” for short, which will produce the most detailed map to-date of the Moon’s water deposits. ASU geologist Craig Hardgrove of the School of Earth and Space Exploration proposed the mission and will be overseeing it as principal investigator and will tell us more.
