I saw this:

Stanfod Cube Sats

And it got me thinking. We don't really have a cubesat community here or a cubesat section.

Should we add and encourage such a community?

How strong is the cross-over with the various X-Prizes and the N-Prizes?

seems to me that cubesats are a natural market to be tapped for n-prize competitors with only a slight scaling up of launch vehicle (need to do a little more than 1kg to orbit in order to launch them). there's lots of demand for a launcher that can do em for order of $10,000 or so.

Yep, this is our first Target Market at Aeronautic Enterprises. And in the next year or so I expect more advancement in small satellites. Everything gets smaller as time goes on I figure if our timing is right we can be part of the small sat. Revolution! In fact we want to start it if we can.
