http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_CubeSats

This is a list of CubeSat nanosatellites. CubeSats are small satellites used primarily by universities for research missions, typically in low Earth orbits.

There are four types of CubeSats; 0.5U, 1U, 2U and 3U. The number corresponds to the length of the CubeSat in decimetres. Width and Depth are always ten centimetres, or one decimetre.
