Basic facts

The satellite is a 3U CubeSat, to be built primarily by students working in small teams. A new team will work on the project every semester. The project was defined in 2014, and the work started start in early 2015. The project is led by Sven Grahn, an experienced satellite project manager.

Eight technical and scientific experiments to be included in the KTH student satellite MIST (MIniature STudent satellite) have now been selected (see Experiment Descriptions). The experiments have been proposed from inside KTH, from a Swedish company and from the Swedish Institute of Space Physics in Kiruna.

The launch of the satellite will not occur before the end of 2022.
