BurstCube is a mission under development at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. This CubeSat will detect short gamma-ray bursts, which are important sources for gravitational wave discoveries and multimessenger astronomy. The satellite is expected to launch in 2023.
This animation rotates BustCube to reveal the spacecraft’s narrowest sides, as well as both sides of the solar panels. The panels will be folded down and latched until the satellite leaves the International Space Station, after which they will deploy. Look for the side displaying the BurstCube logo.
