Aurora Launch Scheduling Change

Due to scheduling complications, the launch of SLU-05 (AURORA) is being postponed. The new launch date is being discussed, but it will launch no earlier than August of 2019. In the meantime, members of the lab will be constructing MVP-1, a smaller satellite that will be launched within the following 12 months. This satellite will be 1/3 the size of AURORA and will allow our engineers to continue building on skills necessary to improve the efficiency of future satellites.
