Title:Atmosphere and Plume Explorer (APEX) CubeSat

Abstract:This study was performed by a group of largely undergraduate students to determine the utility and viability of placing a nano-satellite (CubeSat) onboard the Europa Clipper spacecraft proposed to be launched by NASA in 2021. The main Clipper craft will perform 45 flybys of Europa over a 3 year period, performing several kinds of scientific experiments (mass spectrometry, magnetic mapping, imaging and more). By including onboard a separate small spacecraft additional science goals can be achieved. The spacecraft proposed here will perform both atmospheric science using a mass spectrometer and radiation dosimetry using a set of modified SRAM chips.
