Tom Scott was given a tour of the Innovative Space Logistics clean room facility by Wouter Weggelaar PA3WEG. He got to see the FUNcube-1 Engineering Model and the new Nayif-1 CubeSat which carries an amateur radio SSB/CW linear transponder.

Welcome to Innovative Space Logistics, in the Netherlands: they invited me inside their clean room to see an actual CubeSat satellite that’s going into space soon! (No, this isn’t a sponsored video: I paid my own way there!) Go look at their site: http://isilaunch.com/ – and if you need to send something into space, get in touch with them!
The satellite model I’m holding is holding is the engineering model of FUNcube-1 and the flight satellite that I definitely couldn’t hold is Nayif-1, a cooperation between the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre and the American University of Sharjah.
