Cougs in Space is Washington State University's first Cube Satellite club. Our mission is to launch our satellite, CougSat I, into space by October 2022. We have students from all different majors and backgrounds that work on our eight teams.
A core mission of our club is to train better engineers who know how to communicate and work with a large and diverse team to achieve a common goal, and to connect our members with internship and networking opportunities to further their potential career options after college.
What's our Mission?
To launch! We are close to completing CougSat-I and we are so excited to launch! There are still a few parts that we need to be ordered to complete our satellite to prepare for launch. Our newest team members are already starting on our second satellite, CougSat-II.
Our new expected launch year is 2022! We're so excited to be one step closer to space!
What does our logo stand for?
WSU Alumni Evie Caldwell created our iconic Cougs in Space logo. The dots and dashes around our logo represent Washington State University in Morse Code.

One Small Step
Welcome to space training. This helps fund any small parts that we need for the CougSat. Tiny components like screws are essential to keeping our satellite together even if it's a small part it still helps us complete the big picture.
Gravity won't be holding you down in space! Zero-Gravity Training will help you get used to the feeling of not being weighed down. This funds the cost of materials from screws, 3D printer filament, and others.
