History of the CubeSat

An article titled “The History of the CubeSat” was published yesterday on SpaceDaily.com. Thought we’d repost as we were fortunate enough to have one of those who proposed the current design standard, Bob Twiggs speak at our inaugural event, the 2011 Fort Wayne Regional Maker Faire. Mr. Twiggs specialty is nanotechnology – the branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, especially the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules.

What a great opportunity for area Makers to be inspired to not only think “out-of-the-box” but in this case, to think out of earth’s orbit. What will they think of next?

We’re waiting to hear back from a potential not-for-profit partner to produce the 2017 event. Check back to MakerFaireFortWayne.com as we’ll keep you posted.
