NASA is creating the new Space Launch System (SLS) for human deep space exploration. The SLS will also provide opportunities for payloads including cubesats to fly to the moon and further. We will be discussing the capability of flying cubesats aboard SLS on the first flight (EM-1), specifically describing the thirteen 6U-cubesats and their missions, destinations, and unique subsystems. We will also peek behind plans for upcoming missions and capabilities. Some display items will be present at the meeting.

Above is an actual picture of the Orion Stage Adapter that will house the thirteen (13) cubesats. Can you see the cubesats attachment brackets? Picture was taken at MSFC. Learn more about SLS EM-1 Secondary Payloads (cubesats) .
