On the night of June 20, the first Ukrainian nanosatellite PolyITAN-1, created in the KPI, was launched into earth orbit. Nanosatellites are a class of small artificial earth satellites, the creation of which has become possible due to the development of micromythiatrics and nanotechnology. Now they are increasingly used for various studies, explains the press service of the Ministry of Education and Science. In the NTUU KPI was created nanosatellite in format “Cubesat”, weighing about 1 kg and 10x10x10cm.
