I agree with Mark:  This is great news!  

Thank you to all of the members of the team.  The hardware and software components developed for ARISSat-1 should be good building blocks for future LEO/MEO/HEO opportunities.   Lessons learned from this deployment will directly apply to longer duration flights.

I look forward to hearing the presentations at the AMSAT Symposium and reading more details in the AMSAT Journal.
