The Asgardia-1 satellite has been safely delivered to Nanoracks, a Webster, TX-based provider of commercial hardware and services for the US National Laboratory onboard the International Space Station. It is currently securely stored under five locks in a facility with surveillance and a monitored alarm system.

NASA-mandated tests have been successfully conducted to ensure the satellite's safety: its batteries and power systems were tested; it passed a vibration test, which simulates vibration during launch; as well as the vacuum chamber test, which ensures that the satellite survives in the vacuum of space.

Nanoracks sent a line of code to the satellite, to which Asgardia-1 responded, "Hello, world!"

Please remember to upload your files to the satellite before 22 July 2017, as the next opportunity to do so will be after deployment, currently scheduled for November 2017.

The start of our satellite will be the moment when Asgardia is taken seriously by mankind!

I gald to see that the Deployment of Asgardian-1 has been delayed . This shows that People are thinking instead of running head long .Like the old saying goes The Difficult takes awhile. But the Impossible takes a little longer. I believe thats an old Roman Centurion saying
