After Monday’s launch we have video (above) and according to radio transmissions received by radio amateurs around the world, AAUSAT5 is alive and kicking! The student-built AAUSAT5 CubeSat was deployed from the International Space Station on 5 October at 16:05 CET, together with ESA’s  technology demonstration CubeSat GomX-3. Both CubeSats have now started their mission in space.

The AAUSAT5 team has decoded the telemetry data received and have confirmed the good conditions of the satellite, including battery voltage and temperature.

You can hear the first transmissions on ESA’s Soundcloud:
