The nanosats will stay in orbit for about 2 years and will perform experiments chosen and designed by each individual country. For the first time in history, 50 different countries will have the opportunity to do space research, and probably at little cost.
In the future, similar clusters of nanosats could be launched for collaborative missions, acting as groups and having a single goal. Imagine today a swarm of a thousand of nanosatellites checking Mount St. Helens! Read more for selected excerpts and pointers to this future but historic mission.
