The Space Age: An introduction to modern nanosatellites
Space and satellite applications are among the biggest emerging markets for engineering today. In this talk, Peter will explore some parts of the life cycle of a satellite from conception and requirements through to design and testing, before discussing operations and end-of-life. Along the way, he will explore some of the broader issues in the space industry today including space debris, radio licensing and the impact of geopolitical change.
The talk will be given by Peter Christopher who is a Research Fellow at Emmanuel College, Cambridge and in the Electrical Engineering Division at Cambridge University Engineering Department where he specialises in Fourier Optics. He recently also co-founded Exobotics, a company designing and building satellites for the next generation of space missions. For details of Exobotics, go to https://exobotics.space/
