Dynamic Ionosphere Cubesat Experiment (DICE)

Dynamic Ionosphere Cubesat Experiment (DICE) | InSpace | Scoop.it

DICE launched Oct. 28, 2011, and is now mapping geomagnetic Storm Enhanced Density (SED) plasma bulge and plume formations in Earth’s ionosphere. Two identical spinning spacecraft measure plasma density and electric fields to determine the how and why of variations in ionospheric plasma density that affect the performance of communications, surveillance, and navigation systems on earth and in space.

 

A collaborative effort funded by NSF, the DICE program pulls together talent from multiple sources: scientists, engineers, students, and program specialists.

Space Florida Announces Sub-Orbital Flight Incentive Program | SpaceRef

Space Florida Announces Sub-Orbital Flight Incentive Program | SpaceRef | InSpace | Scoop.it

Space Florida, the State's aerospace economic development organization, has announced details of a sub-orbital flight program intended to stimulate market interest in microgravity research via sub-orbital and parabolic flights from Florida.

 

The Space Florida Sub-Orbital Flight Incentive Program will provide a partial reimbursement for customers to fly research payloads from Florida, equal to one-third of the published list price of an approved flight provider, up to a maximum of $10,000. Space Florida will provide this incentive in order to increase the volume of commercial and academic research payloads that fly from Florida. All flight research considered for the program should have either a terrestrial or space application. The program period commences on January 12, 2012 and is set to continue until December 31, 2013.

Quick Facts: Colorado Student Space Weather Experiment (CSSWE)

Quick Facts: Colorado Student Space Weather Experiment (CSSWE) | InSpace | Scoop.it

The Colorado Student Space Weather Experiment (CSSWE) is 3-unit (10x10x30 cm) CubeSat configuration nanosatellite mission designed and developed by students at CU-Boulder under the direction of faculty and staff. In January 2010, the CSSWE project was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to address fundamental questions pertaining to the relationship between solar flares and energetic particles. These questions include the acceleration and loss mechanisms of outer radiation belt electrons. The goal is to measure differential fluxes of relativistic electrons in the energy range of 0.5-2.9 MeV and protons in 10-40 MeV. This project is a collaborative effort between LASP and the Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences (AES) at CU-Boulder, which includes the participation of students, faculty, and professional engineers.

Asteroid mining firm will ferry CubeSats into space

Asteroid mining firm will ferry CubeSats into space | InSpace | Scoop.it

Planetary Resources -- the billionaire-backed company that plans to mine minerals from asteroids -- will include a tiny satellite in each of its space telescopes.

 

The satellites are called CubeSats, and they're a standardised payload (a 10 cm sided cube, with a maximum weight of one kilogram) for putting university projects into space. Launching them, however, can be a costly and complicated process...
