What's New

* Keeps the satellite on track - previous version would orbit a little too fast.

App Description

"Unbridled Spirit," the Cosmic X-ray Background Nanosatellite (CXBN), was launched on Sept. 13, 2012 from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

The mission is led by students and faculty at the Morehead State University Space Science Center. Partnering on the project with Morehead State University are Kentucky Space LLC, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, Noqsi Aerospace, Black Forest Engineering and Little H-Bar Ranch.

This app tracks the location of the satellite as it orbits the Earth, using the latest available orbital elements downloaded over the internet.
