The main task of the satellite is to investigate how the ferrofluid will behave in space and whether it might be used in the space industry as a flywheel.
The heart of KRAKsat
PCB board is the heart of our satellite. The Python code loaded on the board controls experiment, is responsible for readings from the sensors, and also implements the ADCS algorithm.
Construction of the satellite
How is KRAKsat built?
All of the materials used to construct payload had to be carefully selected to withstand conditions during transport to orbit, and later in a space vacuum.
