Headline Details: Yale BLAST is a 2U satellite designed, built, and operated by Yale undergraduates. It will use commercial components to detect cosmic rays in Low Earth Orbit. The primary mission of BLAST is to provide educational opportunities to undergraduates as they research, develop, fabricate and operate the satellite. The secondary mission is to collect data about cosmic rays in the South Atlantic Anomaly and publish it, so that anyone in the world can analyze the data for scientific projects. BLAST is an educational and scientific satellite designed, built, and operated entirely by undergraduates; no team members have a pecuniary interest in the project. Satellite transmissions will include telemetry and scientific data only, and a command requesting the latest cosmic ray detector data will be published along with the project description. Only the telecommand messages will be encoded, allowing any amateur in the world to receive telemetry and scientific data, as well as test their transmission equipment to see if they can successfully contact the satellite.
