Five CubeSats are set to launch aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Florida as part of SpaceX's third Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-3) mission. The CubeSat payloads have been provided through NASA's Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa-5) program. Below is information about some of the CubeSats including tracking information and links to developers' websites. See Spaceflight Now's launch status page for more information.
