The webinar’s purpose was for future KiboCUBE applicants to learn to design, develop, and test their CubeSat. Furthermore, it included lessons on operating the CubeSat and utilising the data from their CubeSats to develop useful applications.

Registration for the KiboCUBE academy’s second season is now open, and interested persons can register here. In addition, the second KiboCUBE Academy Season 2 will consist of three parts;

The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) launched the Access to Space for All Initiative in 2018. The Initiative has subsequently aimed at building capacity through opportunities in space research and space science data services. These services include micro and hypergravity experiments, space missions, and human spaceflight-related activities. In addition, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) developed the International Space Station (ISS) Japanese Experiment Module “Kibo”. JAXA has been operating it since 2008.
