Suomi100 satellite

Suomi 100: Space weather satellite


The science goal of the Suomi 100 satellite is to investigate space weather phenomena near the Earth, especially auroras, with its visible light camera and an own radio instrument. The satellite was named in honour of Finland’s 100-year jubilee. The MF/HF frequency radio instrument is the first cubesat instrument designed and built at Aalto University. See more details about the polar orbit 1U Cubesat, which was launched in December 2018, at the satellites homepage.
