Were You There? We Were!
This is an actual photo of BEVO-1 in orbit!
Components flown on BLT-24 have made it Beyond The Edge of Space!
But there are "ISSUES" - BEVO-1 and AggieSat-2 are NOT supposed to be connected...
Note the slight separation at one corner - The antennas should have acted to spring the two apart...
