Cube Quest Challenge is a NASA Centennial Challenge competition. The mission is to develop a small satellite able to orbit the moon and travel to deep space. The goals of this challenge are to show the ability to conduct orbital maneuvers, direct the satellite to a certain location given limited information, and demonstrate strong communications with a ground station. Teams that achieve top performance at high-speed data communications, navigation and survival after achieving lunar orbit or a minimum long-distance range from Earth compete for a $5.5 million prize in NASA’s first ever in-space challenge.
