On January 3, 2023, another Ukrainian nanosatellite, PolyITAN-HP-30, created for the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence, will be launched into Earth's orbit from Cape Canaveral, United States of America, using the Falcon-9 launch vehicle of the SpaceX company.

The launch will take place at 16:56 Kyiv time.

The PolyITAN-HP-30 nanosatellite was created by scientists of the National Technical University of Ukraine "Ihor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute" exclusively with budget funds provided by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine within the framework of the implementation of the respective winning projects of scientific research and development competitions and the basic financing agreement.

The delivery of the PolyITAN-HP-30 nanosatellite to the United States of America for its launch into Earth orbit was made possible thanks to the sponsorship of Boeing Ukraine, the support of Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), whose spin-off company took over the financing and technical support of the launch of the spacecraft into space, the State Space Agency of Ukraine, which contributed to solving logistics and export issues.

After the launch into the planned orbit, the nanosatellite will ensure the implementation of a scientific experiment to study the effectiveness of the functioning of heat pipes (heat pipes) of various designs as the main element of the thermal stabilization systems of space vehicles.

From 16:00 Kyiv time on January 3, 2023, on KPImedia - the official YouTube channel of the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute - a live broadcast of the launch of 114 payload units into Earth orbit as part of the Transporter 6 mission from Cape Canaveral by the SpaceX Falcon-9 rocket will begin, one of which will be the Ukrainian nanosatellite PolyITAN-HP-30. Interviews and other events will be held during the live broadcast.
