The inspiration for the original model for CubeSat was… a plastic Beanie Baby box! The cube form is the most practical: without an attitude stabilization on the satellite, you have to have solar cells on all sides. And the most reduced size (at the epoch), was a 10-centimeter cube, to obtain a minimum of energy to power the spacecraft. Once in the hands of students, they filled this tiny spacecrafts with technologies and components of smartphones and microelectronics, repurposed in a creative way for their space missions. As Bob Twiggs put it, “It all started as a university education program satellite.” The question was: How to do something that students could afford during their master’s degree, in a period of about two years, to launch for a reasonable price? At the time, nor NASA nor any military organization nor aerospace industry had not interest and not funded the low cost alternative!!! Bob commented “I’m kind of glad that NASA didn’t help us, or we’d probably never got it done. It was developed for the education of students.” For its part, Jordi Puig-Suari gave a lecture with the self-explanatory title ‘CubeSat: An Unlikely Success Story,’ and recently stated “I think DIY projects are going to be the next step in the democratization of space”
