This e-book is an advent to Cubesats, these renowned and comparatively low-cost modular spacecraft which are upending the aerospace global. they've been outfitted and deployed via schools and Universities all over the world, in addition to excessive colleges and hassle-free colleges, even participants. it's because Cubesats are modular, regular, and comparatively cost-efficient. the pricy half is the release, yet that's addressed by means of release furniture suitable with primarily ever release on this planet. even if you could now not have a lot of a call within the orbit.

At Capitol know-how collage, the place the writer teaches, there's an ongoing Cubesat venture that may obtain a loose release from NASA in overdue 2017, in keeping with an open competition.
