3. Hubble is aiming to launch a third satellite on SpaceX’s Transporter-11 mission this summer and a fourth on Transporter-13.

Those four satellites will compose what it called the 'beta constellation,' and pilot customers are starting to turn their integrations on even today.

HORIS-1 is scheduled to launch to Low Earth Orbit on the SpaceX Transporter-12 mission. This launch is pivotal in establishing the technological and operational groundwork for the subsequent HORIS constellation. Following this step, HORIS-2 is slated for launch aboard the SpaceX Transporter-13 mission, continuing the pathfinder phase of the project.

SpaceX trivia: a satellite on top of a Transporter launch stack is called a "cake topper" (I am serious, I worked on one!)

ABOUT THE PERSEVERANCE FLIGHT
Perseverance, the tenth Celestis Earth Rise service will fly from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California aboard a Falcon 9 launch vehicle. The personalized individual flight capsules -- containing a symbolic portion of cremated remains or DNA sample -- will experience the elegant dance of weightlessness as it orbits the Earth aboard The Exploration Company’s Nyx orbital recovery vehicle and are returned to Earth for recovery. Celestis will then return each participant's flown flight capsule to the family as a keepsake. This will be Celestis' 25th overall memorial spaceflight since its founding in 1994.
...
Launch Date: Not earlier than February 2025

EnduroSat gets order for Botswana’s debut satellite [July 3]

Quote
EnduroSat said engineers from Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST) are joining the manufacturer’s team in Bulgaria to help make Botsat-1, based on a three-unit (3U) standard cubesat measuring 30 centimeters on each side.

Booked on SpaceX’s Transporter-13 rideshare mission slated to launch no earlier than February, Botsat-1 would have a hyperspectral sensor to gather ground composition data to support mining and agriculture businesses in the country.
