Someone posted about this topic about a month ago but I just wanted to bring it back to the front page. UM's best and brightest will be launching their very own cubesat on the S26 mission from KLC up in Alaska. Fear not for the weather is a balmy 34 degrees, thank you global warming. Current forecasts show that all weather is nominal and a go for launch on Friday.
Being a Michigan fan and having worked on one of the payloads on this mission figured I would update and share with you all. And now some links.
