I'm ploting altitude of five CubeSats which were deployed from ISS.
The results is interesting. First deployment satellites are lower
altitude than laters. I guess this is related to initial velocity at
deployment order: #1 WE WISH, #2 RAIKO
altitude: WE WISH < RAIKO
deployment order: #1 TechEdSat, #2 F1, #3 FITSAT-1
altitude: TechEdSat < F1 < FITSAT-1
I'm also ploating ARISSat-1 on the same chart as its time line align
to the five CubeSats deployment date. The chart shows five CubeSats
have large decay rate than ARISSat-1.
You can see the chart on the following URL.
