“The Earth-orbiting mission of the BME developed picosatellite has ended: it entered the denser parts of the atmosphere on September 28 2020 and disintegrated.
After spending the sensationally long time of nearly 10 months in space, the world’s first functional pocket-sized (5x5x5cm) satellite, 1-PocketQube burned up in the atmosphere. Despite a planned lifecycle of 3 months, SMOG-P was fully functional even 8 months after its launch. The systems and the backup units were properly functioning and the developers did not detect any circuit failures either. (Editor note: bme.hu reported earlier on the satellite’s launch into orbit.)”
