Display a selfie and robotic arm with a camera will photograph the screen with the Earth in its background.

Description

Display a selfie of any person on earth, which will be uploaded from our ground station at NTNU. A robotic arm with a camera attached will photograph the screen with the earth in its background. The space-selfie will be sent back to Earth!
Selfies from space is a creative concept, but it's far from the mission's sole purpose. Through SelfieSat, Orbit will gain unique experience in building satellites and launching them to space! This knowledge will be the fundamental baseline of our upcoming satellite missions, such as the FRAMSat-1.
