Well, it looks like the latest Dnepr launch was a success! It's kind of strange feeling for me. The last launch was a failure, to which I had helped contribute 2 of the doomed 18 or so satellites... But I also know that this is paving the way for the Bigelow Genesis 2 module, which I am very excited for... And I'm also excited because of the success of the Cubesats, even though my own University has abandoned the project... It's kind of funny, once upon a time our cubesats were supposed to launch with EgyptSat, on this launch that finally occurred... So, I'm not really too sure what to do now, but I'd just like to say congrats to all of the people who made it this time.

I'm a big Cubesat fan - particularly as an educational exercise - but 3 of the 7 on this flight seem to be commercial projects.
However - it's all good stuff http://cubesat.atl.calpoly.edu/pages/missi...lite-status.php
Up and working it seems http://showcase.netins.net/web/wallio/CubeSat.htm
