ALL-STAR Microgravity Test

The ALL-STAR team sent 5 of its members to Houston, Texas to conduct various tests on its 3U CubeSat on NASA's "Vomit Comet", an aircraft capable of simulating low force due to gravity scenarios. Tests included:

  • Structural Deployment Mechanism
    • Ensuring successful deployment of solar wings in post-launch conditions
  • Attitude and Control System
    • Verifying the success of 3 different reaction wheels in each axis which control the orientation of the satellite in space
