Cube Sats Launch

Four NASA-sponsored CubeSats and a NASA-funded CubeSat, were among thirteen small spacecraft launched from Southern California’s Vandenburg Air Force Base on Oct. 8.

The NASA-funded device will test how accurately a CubeSat can be pointed during high speed data transfer by laser. The NASA-sponsored CubeSats will test new control and communications systems, Earth observations, amateur radio communications and an X-Band radio science transponder.
