Canadian BRITE Satellites Launched

posted Jun 19, 2014, 3:46 PM by Doug Sinclair
The BRITE-Montreal and BRITE-Toronto space astronomy satellites were successfully launched today.  Each carries three RW-0.03 reaction wheels and one ST-16 star tracker.  This brings our current on-orbit totals to twenty-one RW-0.03 and five ST-16.

This is the beginning of a very busy summer.  We have at least ten more satellites set to launch in the next two months.
