Sputnik goes optical

Our students’ project (see a prior post on the return of Sputnik) goes well. Joaquin and Matias installed the Pumpkin cubesat kit – without a hassle apparently – and they wrote their first hello world program. Except that – in this case – hello world is a blinking led.

Their assignment is to design an RF beacon. This is the first step with an optical beacon.

Check out their forge for the latest progress reports.
