【#上海嘉大第一个学生- independently-developed satellite will launch# , is expected to be launched in mid-October】On the morning of September 24, the Shanghai Jiaotong University-Asia Pacific Space Cooperation Organization APSCO SSS-2A satellite expedition ceremony was held in the Aerospace Building of Jiaotong University. SSS-2A satellite is the first satellite of Jiaotong University independently researched and developed by students and leading the payload design. Under the guidance of the instructor, the students iterated the products they designed, from undergraduate to doctoral student, each student successfully developed a PCB board. It will be launched into orbit with my country's Long March 2D rocket at the Taiyuan Launch Center in mid-October 2021

The SSS project involves designing, constructing and launching three student satellites, one micro-satellite named SSS-1 and two CubeSats named SSS-2A and SSS-2B. The SSS-1 is a 30kg micro-satellite with dimension of no more than 350mm × 350mm × 650 mm, and both the SSS-2A/2B are 4.0kg with 3U CubeSat structure design. The three satellites construct a constellation named as APSCO SSS system.



- SSS-1: led by Beihang University in China;
Iran and Pakistan teams support the development;
- SSS-2A: led by Shanghai Jiaotong University in China;
Pakistan team supports the development;
- SSS-2B: led by TUBITAK-UZAY in Turkey;
Thailand team supports the development.

China launches first solar exploration satellite
Source: Xinhua| 2021-10-14 19:24:13

TAIYUAN, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- China sent its first solar exploration satellite into space from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China's Shanxi Province at 6:51 p.m. Thursday (Beijing Time).

The satellite was launched aboard a Long March-2D rocket and entered its planned orbit successfully.

Ten small satellites including an orbital atmospheric density detection experimental satellite and a commercial meteorological detection constellation experimental satellite were also sent into space using the same carrier rocket.

It was the 391st flight mission of the Long March carrier rocket series.
