We would like to announce, that 3rd of December at 19:32 CET, the fourth polish satellite has been launched into the Earth orbit on Falcon9 rocket by SpaceX. PW-Sat2 has been designed and integrated by students from Students’ Space Association from Warsaw University of Technology. It is worth mentioning, that one of our colleagues, Alan Budzyński, is a main thermal engineer in the PW-Sat2 project, and has been in the project from the very beginning for 6 years! We have also obtained temperature readings from the satellite with great results and presented below to celebrate this huge success. We would also like to wish the PW-Sat2 team successful incoming experiments and effective deorbitation.
