XinaBox (pronounced: X in a Box) is the tech being used by high school students to collect data in space!
Over one hundred schools have participated in this ground-breaking space journey to collect data, aptly called the ThinSat® Programme.
Launch takes place on the 15th November 2018, with the Cygnus NG-10 mission from Wallops Island in Virginia, USA. Fifty-five student ThinSats will be deployed at an altitude of roughly 250km and will enter what is known as Extreme Low Earth Orbit (ELEO).
