CubeSats & SmallSats
May 9 & 10
Some are the size of a toaster. Others a suitcase. They can ride into space as secondary payloads in a rocket's "trunk," or even be tossed out of an airlock, to start their missions. Small satellites, often collectively called "cubesats," are changing the way we explore space and monitor our home planet.
