What Does "Guaranteed" Mean?

A guaranteed cube (spot/space) on the mission of your choice means that you get to select whether your experiment will fly on a NASA sounding rocket or research balloon mission.  

Are there things we can or can't fly on a NASA mission?

Yes.  The experiment MUST meet all of NASA's and Cubes in Space's requirements and constraints.  There ARE prohibited items, materials and experiment types.  We do NOT fly cubesats/nanosats/smallsats/microsats or the world's smallest satellites.  

$150 discount if you purchase a cube by 20 February 2023.

Frequently asked questions

What does "guaranteed" mean?

This means that we will definitely fly your experiment on either the Cubes in Space Sounding Rocket-9 (SR-9) or the Research Balloon-8 (RB-8) mission this year. 

What happens if the mission we select is cancelled or delayed?

Then we will fly your experiment on the next available mission.  Sometimes unforeseen events happen, and NASA has to cancel or delay a mission.  This is rare, but it can happen.  For instance, if your experiment was to fly on the SR-9 mission in June from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility - and the flight was cancelled - then you can choose to fly your experiment on the RB-8 mission in August or wait until 2024.  

Since I'm paying for my spot, can I fly anything I want? 

Short answer - no.  Whatever you fly must conform to the NASA and Cubes in Space set of regulations, requirements and constraints.  For instance, no liquids are permitted to fly on the SR-9 mission.  And we are not able to fly powered experiments on the SR-9 mission.  Also, we do NOT fly cubesats/nanosats/smallsats/picosats/microsats, etc...or any experiment that attempts to circumvent prohibited items.  

Experiments must be approved by Cubes in Space.  And all experiments are inspected by Team Cubes in Space and NASA personnel prior to flight.  If prohibited items are included, the experiment will not fly.  And refunds are not issued.
