Dear Graham,

There was nothing special in the separation systems between the 1U's from
the ELaNa 3 launch.  They are certainly close together, in fact there are
three 1Us we think in the link group.  Object F appears to be AubieSat and
Object G is E1P.  MCubed is somewhere in between it seems.

Object E is RAX-2.
