SmallSat Industry 2013 – The Turning Point

What a year for the small satellite industry!  Launching spacecraft through rideshare or "piggy back" is not a new concept, but in 2013, it became mainstream.  Records for the number of payloads on one launch vehicle were set and broken within days of each other. 29 satellites were launched on a Minotaur and three days later 32 were launchedon Dnepr. 2014 should be a great year for Spaceflight, with 30 payloads onboard the ORB 1 mission heading to ISS for
