The CubeSat Project
The CubeSat project is a community project instigated by Orbital Space Technology Company, in order to build the capabilities of Kuwaiti youth – specifically in designing and building satellites, to provide students with hands-on education and to increase access to space. Orbital Space hopes for this project to be the seed for Kuwait’s National Space program.
