Asgardia-1 Undergoes NASA-Required Safety Checks

Asgard 9, 0001 / June 26, 2017

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.

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
