Hi All,

NASA is currently soliciting input regarding the launch services needs of
the CubeSat/small satellite community.  This was discussed briefly at a
presentation at the end of the Small Sat Conference.  As I had not seen
anything about this go out to this mailing list, I wanted to make sure that
everyone that might be interested had an opportunity to respond.  Given the
stated topic of the presentation and the fact that it occurred as the
conference was wrapping up (after lunch on the last day), many of those
that might have otherwise been interested were not in attendance.

The RFI (which is located at the URL below), Dr. Larry Cooper (Program
Executive for Centennial Challenges) mentioned, will be utilized to shape
future competitions aimed at creating lower-cost, higher-frequency CubeSat
launch opportunities (including, possibly, propulsion-system-friendly
ones).  Given this, it seems that maximizing community input (to ensure a
proper balance with  launch service provider/vendor needs/etc.) is highly
