On January 26, 2000, ASUSat1 was launched, culminating years of work by students from the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering who built and designed the satellite. Its mission was to collect images and data and transmit them to the University's Engineering Research Center, but it lost electrical power and remains in orbit. The project gave 400 students the opportunity to participate in the development and launch of a satellite.
