The MRC-100 mini-satellite, the largest constructed at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics so far, will be launched into space in May 2023 by Falcon-9, the rocket sponsored by American businessman Elon Musk. The Hungarian media authority (NMHH) said on Wednesday that the satellite will carry an electrosmog meter, a stabiliser, a GPS device and a camera. The satellite will be fuelled by solar panels and batteries to ensure operation in dark as well. The 600g satellite will also carry equipment developed by the universities of Szeged, Győr and Debrecen. The satellite is on its way to Glasgow for installation on the satellite platform and will be taken to space on board Falcon-9 from the US.
