Congratulations to JAXA for the successful launch! Now from the world's most smallest launch vehicle, we move on to the world's largest!

On February 3 (Sat) 14:03, a demonstration experiment of the ultra-small satellite launch was conducted by SS-520 5 from the Uchinoura Space Observatory.
The SS-520 5 was flown as planned, and after the experiment was carried out, the ultra-Small satellite Tricom-1r (Tri-com One Earl) was separated and the orbit was succeeded."

If I get it right, the satellite's nickname is "Tasuki" (たすき)

Congratulations Japan, JAXA, and Univ. of Tokyo!  Coolest 3U cubesat deployer around.

Congratulations to JAXA and all involved.

Some time ago I asked in another thread about the smallest rocket that could launch a satellite.  Now I have my answer!

Rumor mill says TRICOM-1R sent at least one full iridium transmission. Transmission indicated 3rd stage separation, but higher than expected tumbling. This tumbling appears to be interfering with command reception. Which is a problem, as it may take 2 months or more to settle down the tumbling, but the expected orbital lifetime is around 5 months...

TRICOM-1R apparently is now accepting some commands, and they were apparently able to trigger an image capture and downlink it.
