Flying student experiments for in-orbit testing. This will give the students the opportunity to test their work on an operational satellite and thereby link theory and practice.
DISCO-1 will be used in educational contexts at Danish Universities and High Schools to provide students with experince in satellite operations and spark the interest for STEM educations and the many opportunities in the space sector.
In addition to hosting different student experiments the satellite will also be used by radio amateurs across the globe.
