 About the Organizer :

Autodesk Inc., is a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Since its introduction of AutoCAD software in 1982, Autodesk continues to develop the broadest portfolio of 3D software for global markets.

You have been hired by a space agency to assist in collecting Vanguard 1, an out-of-commission satellite launched in 1958. Your mission is to design a cube satellite using the CubeSat standard considering deployable components necessary to secure or de-orbit the Vanguard 1 as part of a salvage missing for posterity. It is up to you to determine the best way to secure the Vanguard 1 by designing components that will fit within the defined dimensions of a cube satellite and for transport in space. Remember, once the satellite deploys, components may need to expand beyond the confines of the defined CubeSat standard dimensions.
