NASA To Launch UNL Satellite

Apr 23, 2021

A satellite built by students at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln is set for a NASA launch this weekend. The Nebraska Big Red Satellite Team's project is among 14 research satellites being sent into space to learn more about solar power. The team is testing a new type of solar cell to see how it generates power with and without direct sunlight, as well as learn more about its lifespan in space.
