First-MOVE Launch Event

First-MOVE from TUM was launched on a Dnepr orchestred by Isispace. The launch counted no less than 13 CubeSats. We listened in to catch the beacon despite that our GS is currently out of order - due to maintenance of the roof which our antennas normally occupy. Using the manual LEOP Track-a-Sat kit it took some effort and patience but eventually we got it.

So what the fuss with First-MOVE?

Back in 2008 an exchange student from TUM joined our team and worked on a Sun Sensor for First-MOVE. The result is seen below, so naturally we are exicted that the system finally made it to space onboard First-MOVE:
