Heliophysics CubeSat to launch on NASA's SLS
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Feb 03, 2016
Just a bit bigger than a box of cereal, one of the first CubeSats to travel in interplanetary space will be NASA's miniature space science station, dedicated to studying the dynamic particles and magnetic fields that stream from the sun. The CubeSat to study Solar Particles, or CuSP, will hitch a ride out of Earth orbit aboard NASA's Space Launch System, or SLS, which is scheduled for an uncrewed test launch in late 2018. Once the CubeSat is ejected, it will orbit around the sun in interplanetary ... read more
