One of our projects is in space! On November 21st, 2013, a very small satellite built by a team of students at Sonoma State University (SSU) and Morehead State University (MSU) was launched into outer space to measure the magnetic field of the earth. T-LogoQube uses on-board magnetic torque coils to control its orientation and crosses Sonoma County at noon and midnight every 24 hours.
The “Logo” in T-LogoQube refers to the Logo programming language. This is the first time it is used in orbit. Logo software development was contributed by Brian Silverman, president of the Playful Invention Company (PICO). His brother Barry Silverman of Disus Inc. also made significant contributions to the ground system.
