Cute 1.7



Cute 1.7 was the successor of the Cute 1 nano-satellite. It was developed and built by students at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Its operational lifetime was anticipated to be much less than one year due to atmospheric drag resulting from its low orbit.

Cute 1.7 was a follow-on to the Cute 1 mission.
