CubeSats stand at the forefront of the New Space Revolution, a paradigm shift in space exploration characterised by reduced launch costs and increased accessibility to space. These miniature satellites, defined by their standardised dimensions and modular design, have emerged as a pivotal technology with some implications for research in astronomy. With their standardised dimensions and modular design, these Nanosatellites enable a wide range of experiments that were previously the domain of larger, more costly missions. In my talk, I aim to introduce you to valuable opportunities that can emerge by leading a CubeSat project with a special interest in payloads dedicated to astrophysics research. As a cost-effective space instrument, CubeSats unlock observational windows across the ultraviolet, far-infrared, and low-frequency radio spectra, which are inaccessible from Earth’s surface. Beyond their technical capabilities, these satellites enable sustained observations of celestial bodies over extended periods, free from the scheduling constraints of larger telescopes.
