The new CubeSats set is now in space, with numerous scientific research and technological demonstrations, after launching the first NASA mission in Rocket Lab under the Venture Class Launch Services (VCLS) contract.

Electronic rocket 1:33 a.m. EST (7:33 p.m., NZDT) is launching a complex launch on the Mahia Peninsula in New Zealand, for the first time CubeSats has launched a rocket designed specifically for the small load at NASA.

"With the VCLS effort, NASA has advanced the chances of choosing service launching for lower charges, offering small viable targeted bids as alternative routing," said Jim Norman, Washington, at the NASA Headquarters Manager at Launch Services. "The opening mission for the first mission is to open the door."

During the VCLS award during 2015, small satellites and science missions were launched to travel: it was limited to other missions when space was only available. NASA's Launch Services Program manages the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The VCLS awards promote the marketing market for SmallSats and CubeSats orbit circuits to achieve the best scientific return.

This mission is the launching of 19 Nanosatellites (ELaNa) subjects, selected by NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative. The initiative is designed to improve technological development and the involvement of students. These charges will be provided with information and demonstrations in the following areas:

  • CubeSat Commercial Giant Radiation (CeRE) – Large-sized energy particle size of the Earth's radiation belt
  • Simulation-to-Flight 1 (STF-1) – CubeSat Deployment Software Assistant Condensing
  • Advanced Electric Bus (ALBus) – Advanced batteries for solar arrays and high capacity batteries
  • CubeSat Precision Multisistema Time Transfer Management (CHOMPTT) – Exo-planet settings navigation plans
  • CubeSail – Implementation and control of a blade of solar shovels
  • NMTSat – Magnetic field, high plasma density
  • Rsat – Robot handling of weapons
  • Ionospheric Scintillation Explorer (ISX) – Plasma fluctuations in the atmosphere above
  • Shields-1 – Radiation shutdown
  • DaVinci – Higher School School of Grade School STEM

"The low-cost deployment service is now a reality for the deployment of extended science in smaller satellites, the NASA Earth Venture program and our integrated plot mission mission will allow us to optimize satellite satellites whenever and wherever we want," said Dr. Michael Freilich, director of Earth Science at the NASA headquarters in Washington. "Our collaboration is the VCLS effort to help LSP, both NASA and launch the commercial sector."

CubeSats are small standard satellite units of 10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm or two, three or six unit configurations. These small satellites have a great deal of responsibility in the exploration, technology, education and science exploration, planetary exploration, Earth observation and basic Earth and space sciences. The leading technologies are based on the development of NASA technologies such as laser communications, satellite satellite communications and autonomous movements.

NASA will offer CubeSats the opportunity to take first missions to offer missions targets, and announce them in the next round of CubeSats next February 2019.
