miniature satellite developed by a team of It has gathered Turkish engineering students more from 10,000 data items over the past year.
It was Grizu-263A developed like turkey first PocketQube satellite by the Grizu-263 space team of Bulent Ecevit University in Northern Province of Zonguldak.
It was launched in space on January 13, 2022 on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral in American state of fl.
“It stabilized within 13 days after the launch. After it stabilized, health data was received,” Bulent Ekmekci, Consultant of The Grezo-263 space team told reporters.
He said they achieved their goals with the satellite. “We say the time is now for new satellites Ekmekji pointed out that the satellite that rotates in Polar orbit, complete orbit in almost one and a half hours.
This means that he travels around world 15 or 16 times Daily. During these orbits, it moves over different geography locations in the world. It generates data every 10 seconds. exist over 10,000 confirmed data (items).
established in 2016, Grizu-263 team Aims to work on space and satellites technologies. With the support of the country leading Erdemir Steel Plant, and group Launched several projects won various Awards in national And international contests.
Named after a burning (“grizu”) in Turkish) which killed 263 workers in Kozlu district in 1992, Grizu-263 worked on PocketQube Satellite for five years.
PocketQube is a miniature satellite for space research That’s five cubic centimeters (0.31 cubic inches) and it has a mass of number more from 250 gr.
Grizu-263A is designed to operate in Low Earth orbit of approximately 525 kilometers (326 miles) for Four years and eight months. One of It missions is to take photos of Earth.
