How feasible is a university class small satellite lunar mission?
What is it about?
With interest in small satellites growing, universities are expanding on their own satellite projects. SRMSAT - 2 is one such university class satellite on a mission to moon. This paper discusses the feasibility and a likely design for such a mission.
Why is it important?
We show that a university class satellite beyond the regimes of earth is possible, laying foundations for future missions in the same lines.
