Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.

All the points on the right plots are satellite separations. Deimos-2 is the third.

Live coverage from Yasni cut after Deimos-2 separation, so we'll have to keep an ear out for the other 36 satellites.

KazEOSat-2 (KazMRES) in orbit! Congratulations to our all our co-riders on DNEPR tonight.

The deployment goes very quickly (all deployments within 30 seconds I think) so I think we can say launch success....

I wonder how they do with the "interpayload" support (the second floor of the dispenser ;) ): does it get jettisoned in the deployment sequence, just like another satellite?

During this orbit, when over Canada's polar station, they will have a 10-minute pass to command/check solar array deployment and radio beacons.

Yes, the second floor, called "Platform A", is jettisoned and will be cataloged as another object in the satcat.

All 11 Planet Labs Flock 1C spacecraft contacted :)

It was fun seeing them report in one by one, all within a minute during the first ground station pass.

Looks like there's a small out-of-plane dispersion on the orbit but nothing major.
