And Then There Were Two: MTU’s Next Student-built Satellite Set to Launch in 2021

NASA has slated Michigan Technological University’s 2nd university student-developed satellite
for a March 2021 deployment from the Global Place Station (ISS).

Stratus, named for its cloud-imaging mission, will be carried to the place station,
200 miles higher than Earth, in a SpaceX Dragon cargo capsule on a Falcon 9 rocket. The
Dragon will dock to the ISS.

“Stratus will be unloaded by the crew, then placed in the Kibo Module’s airlock, wherever
the Japanese Experiment Module Distant Manipulator Process robotic arm will move the
satellite into the proper placement and deploy it into place,” reported Brad King, Michigan Tech’s Henes
