    I went to the last event when Steve Maybee v.p. operations from EIA gave a speech. Well worth the price of admission.

    AlbertaSat built the Experimental Albertan #1 (Ex-Alta 1) Satellite as a part of the QB50 consortium mission. Along with 37 other cube satellites in the QB50 mission, Ex-Alta 1 measures patterns of space weather on a completely new scale of science. Ex-Alta 1 launched to the International Space Station April 18, 2017 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and was deployed May 26,2017. More importantly, Ex-Alta 1 represents an opportunity for the University of Alberta and the rest of the province to demonstrate a capability for space technology and betterment of humankind on a global stage.
    I am in no way entitled to your opinion...
