OreSat Uses PocketBeagle® to Provide STEM Motivation With Giant “Selfie-Stick” from Space

When the Portland State Aerospace Society started in 1999, the members likely never imagined their open source amateur rocket avionics systems would someday actually make it to space. Twenty years later, thanks to NASA’s CubeSat Launch Initiative, or CSLI, they … Continue reading OreSat Uses PocketBeagle® to Provide STEM Motivation With Giant “Selfie-Stick” from Space

BeagleBoard-xM project spotlight: USS Langley Space Server

By Tara Stratton You’ve heard of monkeys and apes being sent to space, but did you know a Beagle is also being launched into the ether? In 2014, Sam Sipe and his team at the U.S. Naval Academy are launching a BeagleBoard-xM into space as part of their Unix space server. Sam Sipe got the idea for a Linux-based, open-source webserver in space during his sophomore year at the Academy. “I was taking EA204, which is our introduction to Astronautical Engineering course, while simultaneously teaching myself web code for an unrelated venture. Eventually I asked my instructor, CDR Blocker, why … Continue reading BeagleBoard-xM project spotlight: USS Langley Space Server
