Tomorrow, ie. on Friday, April 1, the Transporter-4 mission should begin. It was prepared by SpaceX in response to an ever-increasing number of small satellites.
The Falcon 9 rocket will once again transport several dozen satellites into orbit, as a result of which its carrying capacity will be better utilized. Total costs are calculated between individual customers.
It is not without interest that the fourth Czech CubeSat – BDSat – will be on board the Falcon 9.
If you do not want to miss this interesting event, note that the beginning of the live broadcast with a Czech commentary by Dušan Majer is tentatively scheduled for 5:55 p.m.
