Our Mission

TJ Space Program, TJHSST's space program, was founded in 2006. In 2013, it was the first high school team to launch a satellite into Low Earth Orbit (LEO). TJ Space Program is due to launch its second satellite, TJ REVERB, to space in Q3 2022 through the International Space Station. It will further research the use of Iridium as a primary radio in CubeSats. Both satellites were launched through a CSLI grant and designed without a kit. Post 2022, we hope to create a framework through which high school research projects can cheaply and reliably be conducted in LEO. Our future missions include launching LunaSat GLEE (Great Lunar Expeditions For Everyone) to the moon with NASA's Artemis Mission and TJ BUS, a reliable 3U CubeSat designed to conduct research projects in LEO.
