Who We Are...

AlbertaSat is made up of close to 50 undergraduate and graduate students who work with the assistance of several faculty advisors at the University of Alberta. We represent a large range of backgrounds and capabilities with a common goal of a better future for humanity. We are human beings looking for a brighter tomorrow – a tomorrow that exists with the journey of humanity to the stars.


Our Mission...

Our mission is to build a better future through the development of space technology. We believe that this will allow Alberta to augment many aspects of Albertan industry and society, and move towards a province capable of contributing to a worldwide push for global peace, prosperity and expansion into the solar system.


Our Satellite: Ex-Alta 1

AlbertaSat is currently building the Experimental Albertan #1 (Ex-Alta 1) Satellite as a part of the QB50 consortium mission and the Canadian Satellite Design Challenge (CSDC). Along with 49 other cube satellites in the QB50 mission, Ex-Alta 1’s purpose will be to measure  patterns of space weather on a completely new scale of science. More importantly, Ex-Alta 1 represents an opportunity for the University of Alberta and the rest of the province to demonstrate a capability for space technology and betterment of humankind on a global stage.
