Onward, upward and live to fly another day!

So says Planetary Resources after its small sat got blown up with CRS mission. They were hoping that the Arkyd 3 test satellite would have been launched from the ISS in a few months.

“Its mission was to space-test the avionics and controls systems, show us the strong points, failure points, and then burn up in the atmosphere as its orbit slowly degraded back to Earth after about 90 days,” he continued.

They’ll launch another satellite in about a year’s time.
