Listening to LightSail 2

Please accept marketing-cookies to watch this video.

Bill Nye listens to our crowd funded, solar sail satellite, LightSail 2. The spacecraft transmits an ultra high frequency signal of morse code every 45 seconds and with help from Testing and Operations Engineer, Justin Foley, we can actually listen to LightSail as it soars above us in space.
