A couple of months ago we reported on the ArduSat project, which aimed to enable anyone to control a CubeSat orbiting space. Using similar technology, the FITSAT-1 developed by researchers at the Fukuoka Institute of Technology in Japan houses LEDs that can create a morse code message that can be seen from earth. Just as people have used airplanes to emblazon their messages across the sky, the small 10cm-cubed device – also known as the Niwaka – is fitted with numerous high-power LEDs which flash on and off to create Morse code. The first message, intended to be broadcast over…
