1st International Workshop on LunarCubes

Taking the fullest advantage of the need for science, micro-electronics, materials progress and the need for lightweight payloads, CubeSat concept missions are under development everywhere. Beginning with sub-orbital and low Earth orbit missions, imaginative planners are now looking at the possibilities of CubeSats in lunar orbit.
Flexure Engineering is creating the LunarCubes Working Group and LunarCubes workshops to promote the creation of a standard to facilitate the development of low cost, rapid development payloads that could be easily added to the many Lunar opportunities in the coming decades.

Announcing the 1st International Workshop on LunarCubes:  LunarCubes : The Next Frontier, October 4-6, 2012, Mountain View, California

Call for Papers : June 1, 2012. To learn more go to :
