I was wondering if it is possible to send a small payload to LEO or somewhere above 200 km (130 miles) if you are not a rocket scientist? By small payload I mean under 1 kg (Solid State Drive, GPS, etc.). I have read that there are companies which will take your payload and put it into the LEO or GSO/GEO, but could not find any information about pricing.
You can get a ride for free if it is educational:
To participate in the CSLI program, CubeSat investigations should be consistent with NASA's Strategic Plan and the Education Strategic Coordination Framework. The research should address aspects of science, exploration, technology development, education or operations.
Or you can pay $125K.
