Alpha CubeSat

Alpha Cubesat is a light sail-carrying, cube-shaped satellite—and a stepping stone to our nearest star system. With its holograms, tiny ChipSat computers, and low-cost components, Alpha opens up new techniques for interstellar messages and affordable spacecraft.

Alpha will carry the world’s first retroreflective, solo-flying light sail—and become the trailblazer for future missions to our nearest stellar neighbor, Alpha Centauri.
