CUAVA-1 is in space!
CUAVA-1 successfully launched from Cape Canaveral on Sunday 29 August 2021 aboard a Space-X Falcon 9 SpX-23 rocket. Initially scheduled for launch on the previous day, the original launch was postponed 15 minutes before countdown due to unfavourable weather conditions.
The Space-X Cargo Dragon module carrying CUAVA-1 docked with the International Space Station on August 30. CUAVA-1 is now on board the ISS awaiting deployment into orbit in October 2021.
The CUAVA team held a launch webinar to celebrate this achievement. You can view both the original webinar and the reboot webinar from the following day below.
