For all you space fans out there, we've got a scale model of TechDemoSat-1 for you to download, cut out, and stick together.
We take cut-out-and-stick scale models of our satellites to educational events where they are hugely popular, so we thought we'd post one up in a Blog for download.
Here's a scale model of TechDemoSat-1, which is due for launch later this year. TechDemoSat-1 will trial UK space technologies and is part-funded by the UK government, through the Technology Strategy Board and the South East England Development Agency. You can find out more about the TechDemoSat-1 mission here
Our model is sized for A3 paper and there are two pages to download with full instructions. It works best if you print these out on fairly stiff paper or thin cardboard, (or print onto paper and then glue to cardboard or balsa wood) as that way you'll build a more robust satellite. Hang it on a thread from the ceiling, or mount it on a stand - and voila!

And in case you were wondering, the real TechDemoSat-1 is just as pretty - here it is, flight-ready and waiting for launch!
