Measuring stellar activity of nearby stars. Contains an UltraViolet (UV) spectrometer, a 15cm class telescope.


Blue Skies Space’s new satellite Mauve is designed to monitor the flaring activity of stars that are hosts to potentially habitable exoplanets (planets outside our solar system). Mauve data will help scientists understand the impact of powerful stellar flares on exoplanet atmospheres and the potential of harbouring life.

Blue Skies Space, the world’s first company to deliver commercial science satellite data, will commence construction of its new satellite, Mauve in November 2022.

Mauve will deliver ultraviolet and visible spectroscopy data on hundreds of stars enabling scientists to break new ground in stellar research. The satellite, which has received funding from the European Commission, is currently under construction with partners C3S and ISISPACE and will launch in 2025.
