    Autodesk, Inc., is a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Since its introduction of AutoCAD software in 1982, Autodesk continues to develop the broadest portfolio of 3D software for global markets. Design your satellite and take it to space with Autodesk! Are you ready for an “extra-orbitary” mission? The Vanguard 1 shuttle has been in orbit since 1958 and it’s time to bring it home. Your task is to design a cube satellite that will be used to secure Vanguard 1 and pull it out of orbit. Use the Autodesk® Fusion 360™ to create a 3D model of a cube satellite that follows the CubeSat Design Specification. The best designs will receive virtual mentoring sessions with none other than NASA astronaut Yvonne Cagle, Aerospace Engineering Professor Jordi Puig-Sauri, or Field Ready principle designer Sara Dotz. Enter the competition for a chance to get your creation closer to space and help solve a real-space challenge!
