NASA: SmallSats Testing Big Technology
SmallSats Testing Big Technology.

During a pre-flight briefing from California’s Vandenburg Air Force Base, participants discuss the National Reconnaissance Office’s NRO-L55 mission – scheduled to launch Oct. 8 with a host of small satellite technology demonstrators.
The briefing also provided an overview of the various activities NASA is doing to promote CubeSats and engage all sectors, from other government agencies to all academic grade levels to citizen engineers as CubeSats become increasingly important to exploration and technology demonstrations.
