LCW 3 - Participate in Person or via the Internet
The 3 rd International Workshop on LunarCubes
(LCW 3) will bring together scientists, engineers, investors and entrepreneurs who want to get started now and fly as soon as possible. This workshop is about raising capital, building teams, creating technologies and making discoveries now, not a decade from now. If you want to know what technologies are available today or what opportunities will be available tomorrow, you need to attend LCW 3 in person or via the Internet.
3 rd International Workshop on LunarCubes
Palo Alto, CA ~ November 13 - 15, 2013
A new space age is upon us and the next steps are clear:
In this decade, there will be many ride share and secondary payload opportunities to get tens of LunarCube missions into Cislunar space. In the years that follow, hundreds of missions will be flown, paving a path for more comprehensive explorations leading up to manned flights to the moon and beyond.
(Tues. November 12)
This special evening session for Vendors, Investors, Presenters, and Partners will provide information and training on how you can become a technical partner, participate in the LunarCube Initiative, and use the workshop to dramatically accelerate achievement of your science, engineering, and business goals.
If you are a V.I.P.P. you need to attend this bonus event.
The Lunar Challenges
Workshop participants will help define The Lunar Challenges. Cash prize competitions will be used to advance technologies, teams and skills while attracting public interest and investor and sponsor funding for LunarCube technology development. You may participate in person or via the Internet.
The following are examples of how LunarCubes may be used in future missions:
LunarCube Open Source Software Community
Open Source Software for LunarCubes is a key objective of The LunarCube Initiative.
The workshop will explore the creation of an open source software community to accelerate the development and provide support for the many complex software systems that are required to develop and fly LunarCube missions.
Addressing Today's Financial Challenges
Due to the international nature of the workshops and tight travel budgets, both presenters and attendees may participate in person or via the Internet. If you would like to become a technical partner in The Lunar Cube Initiative, attending the V.I.P.P. Evening and LunarCubes Workshop in person is strongly recommended.

Since Lunar mission opportunities are more rare and costly than LEO opportunities, it will be common to combine multiple LunarCube-based payloads into one package for launch and operations. This will lead to complications not seen in a typical CubeSat mission and the LunarCube standard will have to address three new areas:
I hope you can join us.
