Nakasuga Lab., the University of Tokyo, introduced a bot account tweeting the real-time state of a satellite which is located in the earth low orbit. The tweet(@XI-V) keeps us update with parameters like the satellite’s surface temperature, battery voltage and where it is located over of the planet and also shows us still images shooting the planet from the satellite in the space.
XI-V (pronounced as “Sai-Five”) is an ultra-mini sized 10-centimeter (approx four inches) cubic satellite. It was developed by students of the university’s graduate school for studying the intelligent space systems and launched from Plesetsk Cosmodrome[R], Russia in 2005.
