About Us

Yıldız Uydu is an interdisciplinary model satellite team gathered under the university club SPARK (Space and Art Kitchen) which aims to promote Yıldız Technical University and Turkey on an international basis with their prudential projects.

Yıldız Uydu, being one of those projects, consists of students from 11 different departments, making it easier for the team to proceed in different fields as they build their rover.

What is model satellite?

Model satellite is a type of activity where competitions are held in many parts of the world, with the idea of modeling the structures that form the basis of modern satellites and introducing them to students, and arousing curiosity. Unlike real satellites, it is a miniature satellite that is smaller in size (2-liter coke bottle) and weight (1 kg) and is lifted to a lower altitude by a research rocket.

Our Goals

Represent our country in the best way possible in the biggest model satellite challenges around the world.
Make people curious about the space-related work areas and encourage engineers to take part in similar projects.
Raise awareness among the companies about the space-related R&D that we can pioneer and help increase the start-ups related to these fields.
Raise young engineers as versatile and equipped experts in space-related fields.
Hosting a Model Satellite Challenge in our university in the following years.
