NASA’s CubeSat Launch Initiative invites proposals

US: NASA is inviting proposals for the agency’s next round of CubeSat Launch Initiative. This project enables allows small satellite payloads to fly on rockets planned for upcoming launches. NASA centers, accredited educational institutions and non-profit organisations may develop these CubeSats. But, it should be kept in mind that NASA is only offering a low-cost pathway to conduct research. It does not provide funding for the development of the satellites. NASA has selected 105 CubeSats from 30 US states till date. Out of these, 37 have already been launched, and 16 more are scheduled to go into space in the next one year. The last date of submitting applications for the current round is November 24. Payloads will be selected by February 16, next year.
