"K2 Tuesdays" is a series on the development of KySat-2, the latest spacecraft from Kentucky Space. Prior installments, from new to old, are here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

Last week was busy for the KySat-2 program. I just returned from the MRR, or Mission Readiness Review, at which all the satellite teams from our particular launch present their current state of readiness to NASA and other mission managers.

KySat-2 should be ready to go into the rocket in the next few weeks.

In the meantime we wanted to show a couple photos of the progress of the spacecraft to those of you following Kentucky Space online. The photo on the left is the craft in its stowed configuration, which is exactly how it will appear slidiing into the deployer on the rocket. Once it has been ejected and on orbit, the solar panels and antennas will open. The image to the right is how KySat-2 will appear in flight.

Until next time!
