Exolaunch Signs on for SpaceX’s SSO Rideshare

Speaking of rideshares, SpaceX continues to fill that first rideshare flight to sun-synchronous orbit. Debra Werner, for SpaceNews:

German launch services provider Exolaunch announced plans April 14 to send multiple small satellites into orbit on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rideshare mission scheduled for December.

Exolaunch is not yet saying how many microsatellites and cubesats it will send on the SpaceX mission destined for sun-synchronous orbit.

“We’re accommodating several microsatellites below 100 kilograms and a cluster of cubesats,” Medvedeva said. “These are European and U.S. smallsats coming from our existing and new customers.”
