First gravity space mission

Mission overview

On this mission, the 20th in our Flight Heritage, Exolaunch successfully deployed the first-ever 16U smallsat into geostationary orbit on behalf of Gravity Space. The mission launched on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy on April 30 at 8:26 p.m. ET from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, USA.

The deployment of a 16U smallsat into geostationary orbit (GEO) marks yet another industry-first in a string of achievements for our EXOpod deployer. After setting the benchmark as the first and only flight-proven, 16U-capable deployer, EXOpod has demonstrated its ability to operate in ever more demanding missions and higher orbits.
