Sarah Rogers manages The ASU Phoenix Program, a group of undergraduates with a mission to study thermal emission of urban areas from space.

Here is a short summary from her:
Sunstone's PCBs are being used on the Phoenix CubeSat, a small satellite the size of a loaf of bread, which is being developed by Arizona State University. Our primary mission objective is to educate undergraduates on developing a small spacecraft, but the satellite will have an infrared camera for taking thermal images of the Earth, which we will use to study the Urban Heat Island Effect in the US. Phoenix is a interdisciplinary project, in which our team spans 5 ASU schools that incorporate engineering, space exploration, geographical sciences, film, and public relations. The current launch date is scheduled for May 2019.
