UniBRITE and BRITE-Austria were successfully launched this morning on PSLV-C20.  Each carries three RW-0.03 reaction wheels.  Congratulations to all involved.

The remaining four satellites in the BRITE constellation will be launched in the coming year, and these will also carry ST-16 star trackers in addition to RW-0.03 reaction wheels.
