Published

on

Singapore will explore new frontiers in space by launching a micro-satellite which is around the size of a mini fridge.

The nation’s Satellite Research Centre will see the 100 kilogram piece of technology launched into space, and fly about 250 kilometres above Earth.

The satellite will boast a unique and fuel-efficient engine that will thrust at low power.

It will monitor agriculture, mining and real estate data in real-time.

Researchers say the project is an example of science working with industry to deliver results back on Earth.

It will eventually burn up in the atmosphere when it re-enters… leaving no debris in space.

Musk’s Tesla is currently floating through the galaxy

Although, it’s difficult to say where the vehicle is exactly with or whether it’s still even in one piece.

It is possible the roadster may have been hit by a meteoroid or eroded by radiation. #trending #fetured
