Planet Earth has entered the age of the Personal Satellite with the introduction of Personal Satellite Kit. This kit is the low-cost alternative with offers plenty of room for experiments and functions. Examples of add-on experiments or functions include the following:
Orbital environment measurements (temperature, pressure, radiation, etc.)
On-orbit hardware and software component testing (microprocessors, etc.)
Tracking migratory animals from orbit
Testing satellite stabilization methods
Since this sats are placed into self-decaying orbits 310 kilometers (192 miles) above the Earth’s surface, they do not contribute to any long-term build-up of orbital debris. After a few weeks of operation, they will safely re-enter the atmosphere and burn-up. Personal Satellite Kit is designed to be orbit-friendly.
