CubeSats Transform Technology while Expanding Educational Opportunities "A fleet of cubesats intent on advancing technology development, scientific research, and educational outreach recently hitched a ride into low Earth orbit (LEO). Through the Government Rideshare Advanced Concepts Experiment (GRACE), the National Reconnaissance Office's (NRO) L-55 mission included an auxiliary payload of 13 small research satellites, four of which were sponsored by NASA and nine by the NRO. The four NASA cubesats were selected through the agency's CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) and were part of the Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa) program."
