Posted: Sat, Nov 21, 2015, 7:09 PM ET (0009 GMT)
United Launch Alliance said Thursday that CubeSats will become standard payloads on future Atlas 5 launches. ULA announced a new initiative to fly a cubesat dispenser on nearly every Atlas 5 mission starting in mid-2017. The dispenser would carry up to 24 cubesats, with at least six slots on two launches set aside for free launches of university-built cubesats. ULA said one of those slots will be provided to the school that offers the best name for the new program.
