In the 1960s a group of University of Melbourne Science and Engineering students banded together to build a satellite in their spare time. Share the journey of those students as they built Australis OSCAR 5 and had it launched into orbit by NASA in January 1970. Australis operated successfully for nearly two months before its batteries ran out. It was the first satellite built in Australia and achieved a number of important technical milestones including over a dozen world firsts. show more
