Israel’s nanosatellite set to build autonomous laboraties

Israel’s nanosatellite which was also launched by ISRO’s PSLV is set to build “autonomous labs in microgravity that can function in space” and speed up research on food and medicine. This nanosatellite, BGUSAT weighs only about 5 kilogrammes. It is the result of a joint project between Ben-Gurion University (BGU) in the Negev, Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd (IAI) and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Space.
