The meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 25th at 7:00 PM at the Calgary Sports Car Club, 4215 80 Ave NE, Calgary.
The University of Alberta 'AlbertaSat 50 member Team' have successfully launched Ex-Alta 1, which is currently in orbit monitoring space weather, and the upcoming soon to be launched Ex-Alta 2 satellite that will predict and detect wildfires.
This presentation will convey their plans to accomplish and launch Ex-Alta 2 in the near future.
As well, if you want some context about their project before their presentation, this video summarizes AlbertaSat nicely, and will give you an idea of what to expect. "In the hands of the people: the tale of AlbertaSat" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpyMiu6go3c
