Dalhousie students to take part in Canadian Space Agency's CubeSat Project

A group of students from Dalhousie University have received $200,000 from the Canadian Space Agency to participate in a mission.

The Halifax school is one of 15 teams that will take part in the agency's Canadian CubeSat Project.

The project will see students build a tiny, cube-shaped satellite destined for space.

Dalhousie's research team will be led by Dr. Kevin Plucknett, the associate dean of research for the Faculty of Engineering.
