Pegasus Space Program is a student led smallsat program with the goal of training a small team in how to work with smallsat parts and bringing satellites down from a government feat to a technology sector that can be accessed by anyone. The program is split into 3 phase; phase one tackles how to make something that can survive the perils of space by making a small external weather balloon payload. Phase two is getting proper funding for the third phase. This include both money, but also human and technological resources. The third and final phase is made up of the actual cubesat research and assembly. There are 3 possible missions that the third phase could take on; a 6-unit (10x20x30cm) lunar testbed, a 3-unit (10x10x30cm) lidar system, and a 1-unit(10x10x10cm) telescopic telescope design.
