The ASE AstroSat Challenge is a Hands-On Satellite Operating Experience for Select Students brought to you by the Association of Space Explorers (ASE) and Ardusat.
Have your students ever wondered what it would be like to operate a real satellite in orbit? Maybe they’ve operated a remote control car, plane, robot, or maybe even an amateur rocket; but a satellite that’s orbiting the earth? The ASE AstroSat Challenge is their chance! Gather your students together, and if your team is chosen as one of the select ASE AstroSat USA Teams, you will have the privilege of collecting one week of data from a real satellite in orbit. The data that you choose to collect is up to you and will be based on the experiment that you develop.
