Hi All,

I know that this subject is a very “old chestnut” but I came across this website earlier today http://spaceflightservices.com/

You can see, perhaps for the first time?, a list of opportunities and pricing structures.

I have been pondering :

Whether a 3U CubeSat to GTO could be funded by the community
Whether it would have enough power for attitude control and a sufficiently powerful transponder
Whether it could have deployable antennas as well as solar panels? Combined?

and, of course, lots more questions come to mind.

This could make the subject of an interesting debate/discussion at the upcoming AMSAT-UK Colloquium at the end of the month?

I am looking forward to it already!
