THE SPACE MISSION
Our program works up to the grand crescendo: the space mission!
Student's submit their experiments in advance to be tested. The experiments are then launched on a rocket to the International Space Station.
Cuberider is Australia's only way to access the International Space Station. The very first Australian involvement in the ISS was with our Mission 2016 teachers and students! Cuberider now influences space policy and the industry here in Australia.
CUBERIDER LIFT OFF 2016
On December 11th, 2016 Cuberider launched their first space mission from Tapan, Japan. It was the first Australian launch in decades and the first mission to the International Space Station for Australia... ever!
Over 100 experiments, created by over 1000 students, from over 60 secondary schools across Australia where on board - all taking part in the Cuberider Space Program.
The experiments orbited the Earth for one month collecting data before returning to schools to be analysed and the results recorded.
