This im­age was ac­quired at a dis­tance of 67 me­tres from the cube pi­cosatel­lite, which has an edge length of just 10 cen­time­tres. The pi­cosatel­lite is re­flect­ing sun­light, which makes it seem ex­treme­ly bright. The satel­lite and its two an­ten­nas are clear­ly vis­i­ble. While BIROS is ap­prox­i­mate­ly the size of a wash­ing ma­chine and weighs 130 kilo­grams, the pi­cosatel­lite it­self has an edge length of just 10 cen­time­tres.

This image was acquired at a distance of 67 metres from the cube picosatellite, which has an edge length of just 10 centimetres. The picosatellite is reflecting sunlight, which makes it seem extremely bright. The satellite and its two antennas are clearly visible. While BIROS is approximately the size of a washing machine and weighs 130 kilograms, the picosatellite itself has an edge length of just 10 centimetres.
