FUNcube-2 probable launch date announced
Whilst FUNcube-1 continues to provide a great service, we have been advised that a new launch date has been announced for UKube-1.
UKube-1 will be carrying a FUNcube sub-system and this is intended to provide a very similar level of performance to FC-1. Our sub-system will be known as FUNcube-2 on UKube after launch.
The launch, on a Soyuz rocket, is now planned for June 19th from the Baikonur cosmodrome. June 20th is being reserved as a backup date.
More launch data, precise times and TLE’s, will be provided as soon as they have been made available to the FUNcube team.
