Re: ESA to support cubesat launch



Hi Bill,

I am afraid it comes down to "tax dollars" or in our world - "tax euros".

I believe, however, that Canada has a special relationship with ESA so 
proposals from there might be acceptable:)

Anyway the maiden launch may have an unusual 1200x350km orbit so that could 
be interesting...
