Uncle Sam wants DEF CON hackers to pwn this Moonlighter satellite in space

I hope some thought was put into deorbiting the satellite when this experiment is finished. Cube sats are just as dangerous as any other piece of junk in orbit. There are plenty of obsolete satellites that are still functional on orbit whose functions have been replaced by newer birds. I think it would make more sense to use those as hacking targets as they'll often be more representative of what could be targeting in a hostile attack.
