When will satalite safari know about the orbit?
Rock on little satellite!
I can't see it on Satellite Safari !!! Is it sending signals to earth ? Please, post more news !!!! We all want to know if it is strong and healthy !!!
Way to go!
Francisco - on Sunday, celestrak.com published orbits for 5 new objects with NORAD number 39567, 39568, 39569, 39670, 39571. Our best guess, based on position in the deployer, is that SkyCube is 39569. But it's just a guess at this point. We haven't yet had enough contacts to fully disambiguate the objects. They are all still too close together.
Congratulations, any full communication yet?
Just went to Satellite Safari and found it, based on NORAD number 39569. SkyCube will be just over my head (São Paulo, Brazil) in a couple of minutes... Cool... Wish you guys soon receive reliable telemetry data from the Cube.
I don't think it is 39569. That has a date of 1998.
Dear Greg : I think you are correct. I checked on Satellite Safari and the 39569 seems to be dated to 1998 as you said. Perhaps I looked for the wrong number. I'll be waiting for the next report. Thank you.
Me again to Greg : take a look at http://www.n2yo.com/database/…
I can't fully understand, but NORAD 39569 does not seem to be our SkyCube...
Wait for news... ?
Satellite Safari just changed the name of 39569 to Skycube, so it may be correct, even with a 1998 designation.
What is the situation right now? Where can we find the details to receive SkyCube telemetry?
All - we've been really busy trying to identify which of the 5 new TLEs is SkyCube. As of right now, Celestrak's identification of SkyCube = 39569 (i.e., my original guess) is probably not correct. I'll try to post a more complete update in a few more days, including telemetry info. I appreciate your patience here - this is, after all, rocket science.
