Back From Maker Faire New York
I just got back to California from Maker Faire in New York. We had a really great time showing off KickSat to the thousands of people who came through the NASA booth and we managed to take home an Educator's Choice ribbon.
My favorite thing from the weekend, however, was strapping a Sprite to an air powered rocket and letting a bunch of kids fire it into the sky several times.
We even had a Sprite ground station set up to receive telemetry during the "test launches."
Thanks to all of you, we've made a lot of progress over the last few months and are almost ready to deliver KickSat for our January 15 launch. As always, you can keep track of the ever-changing launch date on Spaceflight Now (just look for the CRS 3 mission).
