Simba CubeSat to swivel from Earth to Sun to help track climate change

Paris (ESA) Jun 16, 2020
Due to launch aboard Friday’s Vega rocket, ESA’s Simba CubeSat is a tiny mission with a big ambition: to measure one of the fundamental drivers of climate change in a new way. The 30-cm long nanosatellite will turn from Earth to space to the Sun and back again, to calculate our planet’s overall energy budget. CubeSats are miniature satellites built up from standardised 10-cm boxes. Simba, Source: NanoDaily.com Simba CubeSat to swivel from Earth to Sun to help track climate change
