The BugSat-1 satellite was launched on June 19.  Congratulations to the team at Satellogic!

BugSat-1 carries four Sinclair Interplanetary RW3-0.06 reaction wheels.  It is notable that we have leap-frogged a technology generation here.  The first of the new-generation high-torque RW3 wheels is now on-orbit, while the older RW-0.06 (with 41 flight units delivered and waiting on the ground) has yet to fly.
