Spaceflight Inc. successfully launched several spacecraft on SXRS-6, the SpaceX Transporter-3 mission, for customers Umbra, Capella, and VZLU/Spacemanic. After a flawless lift-off and the 10th landing of the booster, the Falcon 9 successfully deployed the 3 microsats and 1 cubesat. The cubesat, VZLUSAT-2, was originally slated to launch from Spaceflight’s OTV, Sherpa-LTC1 (which suffered a leak to its propulsion system a couple weeks before launch). It was re-manifested to ride on D-Orbit’s deployment system on this mission. Other customer spacecraft initially planned to ride aboard the Sherpa-LTC1 are being re-manifested on other upcoming launches.
