Argus-2 Satellite Launch Delayed


The launch of the SLU-built Argus-2 satellite from the International Space Station (ISS) has been postponed from its expected Wednesday, Feb. 12, slot. The planned watch party for the campus community will be rescheduled when a new launch date is set.

The Argus-2, built by students and faculty from Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology, was carried to the ISS in November on board a Northrup Grumman rocket. The 4-by-8-inch, 6-pound Argus-2 is going into space as part of NASA’s Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa) program.
