just read some interesting things bout this company, can't find too many articles on them though worth a look if you are bored though. Heres the link
http://www.upaerospace.com/launchservices.html

Going to go sub-orbital soon though, may be worth chucking some experiments on board! get one from the xprize community! or for a team perhaps General Micro-Space to do some short experiments?

Post Way to Go, Jerry!!!   Posted on: Wed Sep 07, 2005 4:10 pm
One article mentioned that Jerry Larson is president of “UP Aerospace”. This is the individual who negotiated the first private FAA space launch permit in Sept, 2000, and the follow on permits up through the first successful private spaceflight in May, 2003 (unmanned). (Rutan’s first manned spaceflight occurred the following month). Larson spearheaded that successful flight, having taken over much responsibility from Ky Michaelson. Ky has long been involved in rocketry, particularly with Hydrogen Peroxide, liquid fueled motors, and continues such efforts (www.the-rocketman.com). It is good to see that Jerry is finding commercial outlets for the CSXT team developments (www.civilianspace.com). It is also good to see that the “Southwest Regional Spaceport” is willing and able to host these suborbital ELVs. Since most knowledgeable teams plan unmanned flight tests before the manned ones, these test flights are a critical part of the development process.

Was looking through their university section and some of their news articles. Imagine being on a research team that sent something up in space? It would require a pretty significant amount of money in grants though, it's still $25,000 to put something large up there. But oh the possibilities...
