PW-Sat is on orbit – so far only in a virtual meaning. Satellite in space environment can be seen in the animation prepared by Paweł Sańczyk. We can watch how PW-Sat looks like and how it deploys his tail covered with an experimental solar cells (in the same time the satellite increases in length to over a meter). The first, who watched the movie, were participants of the plenary session of the Committee on Space Research of Polish Academy of Sciences. The meeting took place last Friday. If you missed that event you can still watch the animation as it is attached above.
