Nice blog Steve. You could perhaps give us some background info about ARISSat?

Thanks KB3001, Look for my blog post this weekend and future posts. I'll be describing in more detail the components of ARISSat-1.

Steve, this is such a fantastic project. It's a shame the UHF antenna is broken.

On the broken UHF uplink antenna, people are still able to communicate to the satellite. It is estimated that ~1.5 inches of the antenna exists in the base. Reports coming in say that the orientation of the satellite matter (which makes sense).

As a former satellite guy, I appreciate that all is not lost. Still, the loss of those dB's is painful. But congratulations on getting something up there and getting at least a good chunk of the access you were expecting.

I hope that the satellite will work well enough to encourage others to launch others in the future. The idea is really exciting and it is a shame that the antenna was broken. I wonder what more can be done to augment the broken antenna?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
