BLUECUBE Aerospace L.L.C.Visit BLUECUBE Aerospace L.L.C. Online
The mission of BLUECUBE Aerospace L.L.C. is to:
- Inspire middle school and high school students
- Equip educators to build, launch, use and educate with CubeSats
- Prepare the next generation
- Create a competitive diverse and technical 21st century American workforce
The idea for the BLUECUBE concept was conceived in 2010 by Kevin Simmons and John D. Moore after meeting at the National Science Foundation.
Both were 2009-2011 Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellows, with Kevin serving in the Engineering Directorate and John in the Geosciences Directorate.
With the emergence of the CubeSat (a nanosatellite class of spacecraft) as a dynamic, teaching tool, the opportunity now existed to inspire a new generation of STEM focused Americans.
