This Cosmonautics Day, watch how hackers improve satellite systems

These students are hacking satellites - and the US Air Force approves

Hackers hijacked a US Air Force satellite with just $300 worth of TV equipment to show just how easy it is.


There are security problems in space - and they can spell disaster

Every time you use your phone, GPS or a connected device you're dialling up a satellite. And yet many orbiting satellites are protected by cybersecurity tech from the 1990s. This leaves the systems and sensitive data vulnerable to hacking, with dangerous consequences.

In partnership with Freethink, season 3 of Coded explores the latest trends in hacking. In episode 4 we meet a young scholar who hacked a satellite with $300 of TV equipment. And we visit one of the teams from 2020's Hack-a-Sat competition who are helping the government to identify and close security gaps in the thousands of satellites orbiting the earth.
