Congratulations to the Texan teams of the Lonestar-2 project on the successful release and telemetry capture of AggieSat-4.  The spacecraft separated from the ISS today.  In a few weeks Aggiesat-4 will release Bevo-2.  Both little satellites use Sinclair Interplanetary reaction wheels.  [ISS uses very big CMGs made by L3.]

I believe this is our first involvement in an ISS launch, and I'm very happy to see it went well.
