The AlbertaSat group at the University of Alberta is out of this world - literally. After the launch of the first successful mission, Ex-Alta 1, the team looks to use their skills to build another cube satellite. Ex-Alta 2 will look to monitors ground conditions on earth and even help predict areas at risk of wildfire activity. Comprised mostly of undergraduate students from many different faculties, the team is working to develop and build their second loaf-of-bread-sized satellite that will hopefully launch in 2021.
