Good on ULA

ULA Offers Universities Free CubeSat Rides on Future Launches, First Slot Goes To CU Boulder. They’ll be able to support up to 12 CubeSats on a single launch. This is a great PR move for ULA — it essentially costs them nothing (ignoring development costs of the Aft Bulkhead Carrier), and gives them visibility into every single university Aerospace department in the country.

It also takes away a potential sub-market from companies that are focused solely on launching small sats, like Firefly and Virgin Galactic. It would be interesting to see how ULA’s CubeSat services will effect the small sat launcher business cases.
