ARAPAIMA is selected for NASA’s CubeSat Launch Initiative

The ARAPAIMA nanosatellite mission, sponsored by AFOSR/AFRL which is in development at the ERAU College of Engineering at the Daytona Beach Campus and led by Prof. Bogdan Udrea has just been selected for a free launch within NASA’s CubeSat Launch Initiative.

CubeSats are a type of nanosatellites – they are only around four inches long, have a volume of about one quart and weigh about 3 pounds.  The crews from over 25 states are participating in this project, but we are rooting for the home team. Good luck, ARAPAIMA!
