On a sort-of-positive note, Interorbital Systems' website shows that they
currently have an open CubeSat slot on their December launch, at only
$12,500. Unfortunately, it is only to a 310 kM orbit. A future launch
carry payloads to 600 kM. No price listed for that launch yet...
I watched the Interorbital presentation at Cal Poly at the weekend. (via
the web and not in person sadly)
I thought I saw $25,000 on a multiple cubesat launch to 620km.
Perhaps they have an eye on the QB50 (50 cubesats to 320km) and others
waiting to fly. It's a big market.
They are starting testing this fall with some sub orbital flights. First
orbital flight listed for March 2011 but that may slip depending on the
The presentation is probably available via u-stream / or cubesat.com
