Students and satellites go together like NASA and space. NASA's Launch Services Program is partnering with universities to launch small satellites called CubeSats as part of the Educational Launch of Nanosatellites, or ELaNa, mission. Nicknamed CubeSats, because of their shape, they were built by college teams from Montana State University, the University of Colorado and Kentucky Space, a consortium of state universities.
Join NASA's Digital Learning Network for a webcast on Feb. 22, 2011, from 1-2 p.m. EST, to meet the teams as they describe their experiences and to learn more about the project and how you can get involved in launching satellites with NASA.
