When NASA launches its next mission on the journey to Mars a stationary lander in 2016 the flight will include two CubeSats.

With help from NASA, a small research satellite to test technology for in-space solar propulsion launched into space Wednesday aboard an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, as part of the agency's CubeSat Launch Initiative.

Although scientists are increasingly using pint-size satellites sometimes no larger than a loaf of bread to gather data from low-Earth orbit, they have yet to apply the less-expensive small-satellite technology to observe physical phenomena far from terra firma.

NASA is extending an opportunity to college and university teams to propose small spacecraft technology projects that they can conduct in collaboration with NASA researchers.

At any given moment, our sun emits a range of light waves far more expansive than what our eyes alone can see: from visible light to extreme ultraviolet to soft and hard X-rays.

ESA Is Interested in Cubesats

In parallel with the Proba minisatellite missions, ESA is now also utilising much smaller 'CubeSat' nanosatellites. These are employed for the In-Orbit Demonstration (IOD) of miniaturised technologies and for small payload-driven missions.

The Dellingr six-unit CubeSat, which is taking its developers just one year to design, build and integrate, won't be the only potentially groundbreaking capability for NASA.

A team of Belgian students have taken steps towards gaining their 'Ticket to Orbit!', not for themselves, but for the CubeSat they are developing.

NASA has chosen proposals from 10 universities to study CubeSat concepts that could enhance a Europa mission concept currently under study by NASA.

Deploying Cubesats From the ISS

In the grasp of the Japanese robotic arm, the CubeSat deployer releases a pair of NanoRacks CubeSat miniature satellites.

Hyperspectral Imaging by CubeSats

A new hyperspectral camera able to fit in the palm of a hand, compact enough to fly on CubeSat-sized missions, is being developed by ESA.

NASA's Space to Ground is your weekly update on what's happening aboard the International Space Station.

More CubeSats Deployed From ISS

The deployment of miniature satellites from the International Space Station continued Thursday.

A new fleet of 28 small satellites, called Flock 1, may help provide a perspective of Earth to people like never before.

A new, low-cost cubesat mission will demonstrate technology needed to measure the absolute imbalance in the Earth's radiation budget for the first time.

Mission controllers have confirmed that a small satellite launched from the International Space Station last week has successfully entered its orbit.

Next Generation PhoneSat Launched

A second-generation smartphone cubesat as well as a nanosatellite deployment system, launched into space Tuesday from the Virginia coast.

One of Aerospace's CubeSats captured a photo of the moon's shadow on Earth's surface during the solar eclipse that occurred on Nov. 3. This solar eclipse began at 11 a.m. UTC and lasted for about two hours, with the shadow of the moon tracing a thin path that began in the Atlantic near Bermuda, crossed the ocean in a southeasterly direction, and ended over central Africa.

Students from the iSEDE team are preparing their experiment for integration on their CubeSat as part of the Balloon-borne EXperiments for University Students (BEXUS) project.

CubeSat Workshop

NASA EDGE and special guest host Tiffany Nail explore the latest developments in nanosat technology at the 10th Annual CubeSat Development Workshop. MagnetoStar-1, however, still won't fly.
