Details
NASA Ames Research Center has been a leading NASA advocate for CubeSat for a number of years, conducting a spectrum of missions including astrobiology (Pharma-Sat) to innovative low cost technology demonstrations, such as PhoneSat. Through the successful flights of dozens of these nanonsatellites from Ames, many lessons have been learned, discoveries made, technologies demonstrated, and paradigms shifted. This presentation will cover a "short history of nearly everything" to do with Ames CubeSats and how to get involved. We will include a brief view of the Cube-Sat event horizon and beyond.
