Headline Details: DANTESAT is a 3U Cubesat with the primary aim to provide a cultural dissemination about Dante Alighieri Divine Comedy; the entire opera is engraved on metallic boards on the satellite. The secondary aim of the satellite is the re-entry of the satellite by means of an End of Life system (i.e. drag sail) into the atmosphere and the consequently burning of the satellite, replicating Dantes descent into hell, in order to mitigate space debris problem. The satellite’s radio transmits the first lines of the Divine Comedy in order to raise awareness and cultural knowledge related to the poet Dante Alighieri in occasion of his 700 years from his death. It additionally transmits housekeeping data through the beacon to the radioham community, which can interrogate the spacecraft making use of both its frequencies. Proposing VHF and UHF downlinks using 9k6 FSK and 2k2 spread spectrum LoRa. Planning a launch from Wallops Flight Facility to the iSS in August 2022. **The team has been advised that IARU does not support non-amateur activities in bands allocated to the amateur satellite service and have declined to provide coordination for this mission**
