Artemis 1 will carry a space weather cubesat to study solar wind

NASA’s upcoming Artemis 1 mission may be focused on the moon, but at least one of its payloads will turn its focus instead to the sun.

Hitching a ride on NASA’s Artemis 1 is a CubeSat weather station destined to orbit the sun in interplanetary space. The CubeSat to study Solar Particles (CuSP) is a six-unit (6U) cubesat  designed by the Southwest Research Institute (SWRI) in San Antonio that will study the onslaught of solar radiation headed for Earth, otherwise known as solar wind.
