KickSat Is Alive!
After a beautiful launch at 3:25 this afternoon, KickSat was deployed in low Earth orbit. We at Cornell and several amateur radio operators around the world have made contact with the spacecraft and it is alive and well. I can't thank all of you enough for your tremendous support over the past two years. Thank you for believing in KickSat!
This is the culmination of a lot of hard work and is a huge milestone, but we're not done yet. In 16 days the Sprites will deploy from KickSat. We need as many people as possible listening in, so if you're interested, please check out the wiki and our mailing list for more information. As always, don't hesitate to contact me with questions.
