PW-Sat deorbited on October 28th, 2014

PW-Sat has disappeared from the NORAD TLE data base on 28th of October 2014. From the data we obtained it seems that our first satellite deorbited after 2 years, 8 months and 15 days after the launch from Guiana Space Centre aboard Vega rocket.

More information is coming soon as we have to perform some further analysis of the historical TLE data.

Below you may observe the PW-Sat2’s perigee changes.

We’ve also checked the TLE status for all the satellites which had been launched with PW-Sat on the Vega rocket in 2012 and most of them is still orbiting.
