Submission + - NASA Cancels Nanosat Challenge

RocketAcademy writes: "NASA has canceled funding for the Nano-Satellite Launch Challenge, a $2-million prize competition that was intended to promote development of a low-cost dedicated launch system for CubeSats and other small satellites.

The cancelation is a setback for small satellite developers, many of whom have satellites sitting on the shelf waiting for a launch, and the emerging commercial launch industry.

The Nano-Satellite Launch Challenge was being run by NASA and Space Florida as part of NASA's troubled Centennial Challenges program. The sudden cancelation of the Launch Challenge, before the competition even began, is calling NASA's commitment to Centennial Challenges into doubt."
