My lab’s recent microgravity flights gave us some good data to demonstrate that we’re not totally crazy with this flux-pinned spacecraft idea. In fact, it actually works. We were able to get mockup CubeSat-sized spacecraft to pin together without touching, and use magnetic fields to form a non-contacting hinge.

An article just appeared in the Cornell Chronicle about our stuff.

We’ll be applying to fly a refined experiment on the Vomit Comet next summer, as well, through the NASA FAST program. (Check out the link to our video on the FAST front page!)
