There are LOTS of reasons that the bird could have failed, in my viewpoint the BEST one is that the battery has some issues.  Operating the vehicle in a thermal environment that it was not designed for would be a first guess, followed by some sort of "crib death" issue, and next comes parts connected wrong.  

In any event the failure does not bode well for a successful sat deployment.

See if this makes it on the board.  Robert G. Oler WB5MZO
