Cornell University, The Museum of Science Fiction and NASA Space Grant consortia grantees are hosting a competition for high-school students to get CubeSat projects they develop launched into space. The announcement was made Oct. 19, 2015, during White House Astronomy Night.

The competition's goal is to infuse agile and innovative ideas into the space sector and get more students inspired to work with technologies that democratize access to space. Eight prizes will be awarded, and the winners will have their mission-design proposal funded and built as well as have the opportunity to apply to NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative for a launch. Each team then will be partnered with a university that will create the technologies to make the concepts real.
