SpIRIT delivered for launch

All tests are nominal and SpIRIT is ready for launch! SpIRIT, the first Australian Space Agency funded satellite, has been fully tested and has left Melbourne for the Netherlands on the first step in its journey to space. In the Netherlands, SpIRIT was inserted into its dispenser pod and is ready for the next hop to California where it will launch to space on a Falcon 9.
