What Is NEUDOSE?
NEUDOSE is the name of McMaster’s first satellite and, in 2018, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) selected the mission for the Canadian CubeSat Project. Once in orbit, the NEUDOSE satellite aims to further our understanding of long-term exposure to space radiation by investigating how charged and neutral particles affect astronauts that are living and working in low-Earth orbit. If you’d like to learn more about the NEUDOSE project, please visit our website at mcmasterneudose.ca and stay tuned for updates on how to get involved with our next satellite mission
When Is It Launching?
NEUDOSE will be launching on February 19th, 2023, via a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and we’ll be hosting a launch viewing party closer to the date! However, before it launches, the satellite will have to be inspected and inserted into a special deployer that is provided by the CSA. A few of our student members will be visiting the CSA next week to hand over the satellite and perform the final integration checks.
