LONG BEACH, Calif. (Garvey Space PR) — The NASA Launch Services Program (LSP) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida has initiated a new high-altitude launch service for demonstration NanoSatellites. This service is intended to provide streamlined, introductory launch opportunities for the growing number of academic, business and research organizations that are developing CubeSat and NanoSat-class payloads.

The first flight under this program took place on Saturday, Dec.8, and featured the Prospector 18D (P-18D) suborbital reusable launch vehicle (sRLV) originally developed and previously flown three times by a team consisting of Garvey Spacecraft Corporation (GSC) and California State University, Long Beach (CSULB).
