What is a PongSat?
PongSat stands for ping-pong satellite and consists of any experiment that can be contained within a ping-pong ball. Projects range from things as simple as a marshmallow to programmed circuit boards. Almost all experiments are welcome, just make sure they adhere to all of the guidelines in order to ensure a safe flight. Also feel free to check out our introductory PongSat video featuring some of the Space Hub team!
