ALE 2 launched today, on Rocket Labs' 10th Electron vehicle.  It carries two more Sinclair Interplanetary star trackers, bringing our total in space up to 57.

This brief video shows the spacecraft, with the two star trackers mounted to the top surface.  Each aperture is covered with a remove-before-flight baffle cap.
